Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 6:30 p.m., July 5, 2015

There’s another active weather pattern heading into the first full week in July. After receiving about an inch of rain on the Fourth of July, the weather was much calmer this Sunday. That will change; we have several atmospheric features to watch over the next few days. Energy over the Tennessee Valley will lift to the northeast through tonight and move into Western Pennsylvania late tomorrow. That means showers and thunderstorms are expected for areas west of D.C. through this evening.

Overnight, there’s a chance of showers and a few thunderstorms. Any one of these could bring heavy downpours with all the moisture we have out there. Heat and humidity will continue tomorrow with a few showers in the morning hours. We’ll get midday clearing as temperatures rise to the mid-80s. Expect another round of showers and thunderstorms — some could be strong to possibly severe — Monday afternoon and evening.

By Tuesday, the heat and humidity returns. It looks like only an isolated chance of a stray shower or storm. Temperatures start to move through the 90s, beginning Wednesday, with daily rain chances as a front that moves through on Wednesday will stall to the south to finish out this work week.
