Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated at 10 p.m. May 22, 2015 

Great timing- fantastic weather as we head through the Memorial Day weekend!

Behind this evening’s weak cold front, a fresh batch of cool, dry air is settling into the area. This will set the stage for a star-filled sky with chilly temperatures in the 40s in suburbs to the lower 50s in the District. There will even be some frost in far western Maryland overnight! Despite the cool start tomorrow, we will see glorious sunshine, thanks to a large bubble of high pressure, and that will warm temperatures nicely into the 70s. Sunday will be warmer with a southerly breeze on the back side of the high pressure cell. Highs will be in the 80s but the good news is that humidity levels will remain comfortable. As southerly winds continue into Memorial Day, it will turn warmer and a bit more humid; temperatures will encroach upon 90 degrees by afternoon but we will stay rain-free for outdoor Memorial Day services and plans. The heat and humidity will persist into Tuesday with highs in the 90s and the chance of a few afternoon thunderstorms.

Have a safe Memorial Day weekend and let us remember in a special way those brave military heroes who sacrificed for our freedom.
