  • 80s and 90s stick around through Sunday
  • Scattered afternoon showers and storms
  • Cold front enters by Monday

The mild, muggy air continues to move over the area this weekend. This will not only bring back highs in the 90s, but also keep overnight temperatures from cooling off. Lows will only get into the upper 60s.

THE WEEKEND

Saturday remains warm with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s and muggy conditions. It may feel more like the mid/upper 90s with the humidity. A weak disturbance could introduce a few afternoon storms Saturday afternoon with the best chance near the mountains. Another cold front will move through the Mid Atlantic late Sunday into Monday. Any shower and storm chances would be most likely during the afternoon Sunday. As of now, severe weather is not likely, but a strong storm or two will be possible.

Another front pushes through the area on Sunday triggering more showers and storms.

COOLER NEXT WEEK

Models have indicated that Sunday’s front could linger for bit next week and allow for cooler weather and daily shower chances through midweek. This will keep a better chance of clouds, showers and storms for Monday and early Tuesday. A few of the models have it even lingering into Wednesday before moving out. Temperatures will be much cooler as we start the week with highs in the upper 70s.
