Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 8:35 a.m., Aug. 2, 2015
High pressure will strengthen its grip on the Mid-Atlantic over the next few days. This means higher temperatures, higher humidity levels and heat indices near 100°.
For Sunday, 100% sunshine and our 10th 90°day in a row. The UV Index is in the VERY HIGH range so remember your sunblock before heading out for the afternoon.
The heat will peak on Monday with highs in the mid 90s and a heat index near 100°.
On Tuesday a weak weather system passing well to our North will increase our clouds and could bring a few scattered showers/thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon. There will be still be enough sunshine to get us into the 90s, but the added clouds should keep us in the lower 90s. Rain chances will be a bit higher in Northern Maryland and the Shenandoah Valley.
We will dry out again on Wednesday ahead of a more potent pattern change that arrives on Thursday. That new pattern will increase rain chances and lower temperatures. Showers are looking more and more likely for Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
