Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated at 1:15 p.m. May 5, 2015

This will be by far the warmest stretch of days we have had this year as temperature remain above normal this week.  Highs today will top out in the low to mid 80s. You will feel the humidity just slightly more today as well. Clouds will be on the increase with a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening as a cold front begins to sag south slowly. That cold front will eventually sink south from the north by Thursday giving us another chance of some showers and/or an isolated storm tomorrow afternoon.

Tomorrow will be just slightly cooler as more clouds will be around for much of the day (maybe a few peeks of sun to get the day started-with areas of fog). By Thursday, we begin to dry out but clouds will remain. Temperatures on Thursday will still be above normal but about the “coolest” we will see this week as they top out in the mid to upper 70s. Mother’s Day weekend still looks good for us with the coastal low staying far enough south not to impact our weather here in the D.C. region (again, this is something we will continue to watch). A mix of sun and clouds Friday with temperatures in the lower to mid to 80s. The weekend and for Mother’s Day looking to hit just above 85.
