Discussion

Temperatures reached 94 degrees yesterday at Reagan National Airport (DCA) and it may be quite difficult for us to have another 90 degree day this season - certainly no time in the near future. A strong cool front has reached the region and the result will be noticeably cooler conditions today compared to the past few days along with occasional showers and thunderstorms. Some of the rain will be heavy at times as the front only slowly pushes through the region. Following the front, it’ll turn less humid on Friday and it’ll stay on the cool side right through the weekend. The weekend is likely to feature some additional rainfall as a strong disturbance pushes in from the Midwest.
