Summer-like temperatures greeting us on this "short" work week, but it may feel long with a stretch of above average temperatures and higher humidity. High pressure sitting over the Atlantic will serve as a conveyer belt to pump in heat and moisture this week. The southerly flow will drive temperatures in the to the mid-to-upper 80s each day. A cold front will approach the Mid-Atlantic late today and will trigger scattered showers and thunderstorms to the region. There is a slight risk that a few storms will produce damaging winds in excess of 60mph. Heavy downpours are likely. This will most likely happen between 12p and 8p this afternoon starting in the mountains and moving from west to the Bay. The cold front will weaken and fizzle out near us, so we won't get refreshing dry air sweeping in. Instead, showers and thunderstorms will redevelop in spots on Thursday afternoon with the heating of the day. Another cold front will approach on Saturday. This one is stronger and will break down the ridge in place. It may take until Sunday to clear out chances of rain. Temperatures will be more seasonable early next week.
