Discussion

It’ll turn hot and humid by tomorrow afternoon, and the transition today from the weekend dry and cool conditions will bring us the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms; especially, on the north side of the District . It’ll get milder today, but the real heat and humidity will be more noticeable on Wednesday after a warm front works its way to our north. This frontal passage will set the stage for a hot and humid period from Thursday through Saturday. By later Sunday, a cold front will approach from the west increasing our chances again for more shower and thunderstorm activity at the end of the upcoming weekend.
