An unseasonably cool air mass has invaded the Mid-Atlantic and won't budge for the next few days.  High pressure in the Midwest will usher in northwesterly winds and temperatures that are more typical of Mid-September than late July.  Temperatures this morning bottomed out in the upper 50s to mid 60s across the region.  Dulles was four degrees shy of the record low on this date.

 


Tuesday Morning Lows

 

  High temperatures will reach to near 80 this afternoon, about 5-10 degrees below average across the region.  Mostly sunny skies can be expected through tomorrow.  A few more clouds are expected by Thursday as temperatures creep in the mid to upper 80s.  By Friday, high pressure slips off the coast and brings a return of more humidity and chances of thunderstorms that will continue through the weekend.
