Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated at 12:15 p.m; May 23, 2015
What a terrific start to the Memorial Day weekend!
A large area of high pressure is settling into the Mid-Atlantic States Saturday afternoon, providing plenty of sunshine. Despite the cool start, temperatures will recover nicely with highs in the lower 70s, helped along by the sunshine. Since the humidity will be low, it will feel just about perfect. Clear and tranquil conditions will continue tonight with chilly temperatures again- 40s in suburbs and middle 50s inside the Capital Beltway. 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 continue to increase as we head back to work Tuesday with highs eclipsing 90 degrees. The only temporary relief may come in the form of a few cooling afternoon/evening thunderstorms. We expect the hot and muggy weather to continue through much of the work week along with the chance of a late-day storms.
