Here we go! The start of less humid air is upon us! Comfortable conditions will continue to filter in today behind a few morning showers. By the afternoon, we could get *some* clearing as a frontal system sweeps to the south and east. There could be a few showers that linger into the afternoon hours south and east of D.C. Daytime highs today will be in the lower to mid 80s with dropping dewpoints. Tomorrow will be absolutely gorgeous with dry weather, low humidity and sunshine. Sunshine continues for the first part of Saturday before humidity creeps in and clouds creep in by the late afternoon. There could be a few isolated showers/storms on Saturday but a better chance of widespread showers and storms on Sunday as a frontal system crosses through the region. Saturday and Sunday will be warm with temperatures around 90. Sunday will be much more humid. A few showers may linger on Monday but by Tuesday, more comfortable conditions follow.
