A few spots will have a thunderstorm this evening. Later tonight will be partly to mostly clear with some areas of fog. It will be another muggy night with lows in the 60s. The September heat wave will continue on Wednesday with some hazy sunshine. Highs will be well into the 80s to the lower 90s and we will flirt with a record high in some locations. While the chance for a pop-up thunderstorm is not zero Wednesday afternoon and evening, the chance will be quite small.
Thursday will be quite warm and humid with a mix of clouds and sunshine. An approaching cold front will bring some showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon into Thursday night. Highs on Thursday will be in the 80s. This front will stall close to the area and give us cloudier and more unsettled weather for a while. We’ll still have more clouds than sunshine on Friday along with scattered showers, perhaps more numerous down toward the Maryland border. These clouds will keep temperatures from rising out of the 70s. We may still have more clouds than sunshine on Saturday, but we likely will have a break from the showers for a bit. Highs on Saturday will be in the 70s. The leftover moisture from what is now Tropical Storm Gordon may be tapped by this front and we’ll get a period of wet weather. Sunday will feature a mostly cloudy sky with showers developing. Depending on the timing of the rainfall, some places may not get out of the 60s on Sunday. Monday will also be rather cloudy with showers or a period of steadier rainfall. Highs on Monday will be in the upper 60s to the lower 70s. Showers will still be possible on Tuesday. Highs will be in the 70s.
