Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 11:45 p.m., July 28, 2015

The rain is nearly gone, and the next event will be fog for the early morning rush. While it has been hot, dangerous heat is on the way before the week is over.

That’s five in a row.  Reagan National has now been 90 degrees or above for five days in a row and there’s no sign of this heat wave ending anytime too soon.  There is a weak cool front coming our way for Thursday afternoon, but other than increasing the storm chances and lowering the humidity, this front will have very little impact on our weather.

Wednesday will be a repeat performance of Tuesday — uncomfortable and a little stormy.  Highs will be in the low 90s, with the heat index near 100 degrees and only a slight chance for a cooling thunderstorm in the late afternoon.

Thursday looks to be the worst day of the week.  Oppressive! Ahead of that little front temperatures will soar into the mid 90s with a heat index between 100-105 degrees.  With that much heat and humidity around, and the added “kick” from the front, we expect a round of strong to severe storms Thursday afternoon/evening.

For Friday into the weekend, the heat will stick around even though the humidity will drop off quite a bit.  We’re likely to keep afternoon highs above 90 degrees for ALL of the next seven days.
