Temperatures have topped 80° in D.C. and near that mark almost everywhere else across the region.  Getting even warmer, or some might say 'hot', over the next two days!

Mid 80s at least for a high temperatures in D.C. to finish the weekend, and we won't stop there.  Look for temperatures to go even higher on Monday with Tuesday being the warmest day this week, and the potential to be closer to 90° if strong enough southwest winds develop!  As for rain chances, a fading cold front will near by Tuesday evening bringing the first chance for what I'd consider widely scattered, if not isolated, showers and possible thunderstorms.  Wednesday could bring the next likeliest round of rain for the region as the front washes out right over us.  Look for scattered showers and thunderstorms with it feeling a bit more humid that day too.  Forecasts are a bit more in line with developing a 'tropical-like' system off the Southeast Coast by the end of the week.  If it does develop and takes a track north as some data suggest, then it could play a role in enhancing storm chances by next weekend.  It's still a ways away, but we'll keep track of that in the Stormwatch 7 weather department.  Be prepared for some of the first almost hot days of the year, which is also a good time for those that work outside to begin to plan ahead in laying out some light, breathable clothing, and washing out the water bottle to keep well hydrated.
