Memorial Day Weekend is going off without a hitch, sunny, not that humid, but just warm enough to cool off at the beach, or pool and not too hot to be out grilling!  Look for temperatures to continue to climb into the mid to upper 80s on Memorial Day while mostly sunny skies should dominate, and the humidity creeps up a little bit higher as well but doesn't feel too bad.  Higher humidity will come in by Tuesday but rain chances are most likely north and west of D.C., so points east such as Annapolis and Southern Maryland will have a minimal chance of a shower.  By Wednesday look for temperatures in the upper 80s and possibly as hot as lower 90s with high humidity and better chances for scattered showers and possible thunderstorms through the entire region.  Some forecasts were calling for highs into the lower to mid 90s for much of this week, but now nearly all forecasts have converged on warm/hot temperatures right around 90° in the upper 80s, or at the hottest just into the lower 90s.  A weak/fading cold front brings more widespread showers and possible thunderstorms by Wednesday and Thursday, but as it washes out over the weekend more storm chances linger into Friday while heat and humidity also hold firm.  The next cold front that actually pushes through the Mid-Atlantic could come in as early as next Saturday or hold off as late until the following Monday after this Memorial Day.  This part of the forecast is so far out, we'll just keep with the current trend of warm/hot/humid days and chances for scattered showers and possible thunderstorms all the way through next weekend until we see a trend for an earlier frontal passage.
