Morning rain moved through right on cue and left clouds up until late morning.  But a little bit of sunshine that popped around the noon hour was enough to warm us to 80° or into the lower 80s which sparked a cluster of thunderstorms.  These storms are expected to roll through the D.C. metro through 6PM, but most forecasts have these storms out by 8PM-9PM for your fireworks display to go as planned.

Drier on Sunday with just the slightest chance of an isolated shower or storm, and the likelier chances that occurs will be south and southwest of the metro.  Turning hotter and more humid next week with more chances for storms each day.  Some indications some serious heat with highs into the mid 90s could occur, we'll wait and see more forecasts for consistency to make a change that direction.
