Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated at 6:16 a.m. May 6, 2015 

After the morning fog fades out, expect a mix of sun and clouds Wednesday (very similar to Tuesday). Temperatures, however, will stick mainly in the lower 80s Wednesday with a touch of humidity — and yet another chance of afternoon showers and some thunderstorms as a cold front creeps in from the north.

Eventually, that front will fizzle out to the south of us Wednesday night as high pressure builds into the region from the north. Expect any showers to dissipate during the overnight.

With high pressure sitting to our north and an easterly flow coming in, expect more clouds than sunshine Thursday, but conditions will be dry. Temperatures on Thursday will top out in the mid- to upper 70s. By Friday, there could be a few more peeks of sunshine but still dry, with temperatures topping out in the lower 80s.

The weekend is still questionable, as an subtropical low meanders around the Carolina coast. It’ll feel fairly humid compared to the past few days, and there’s a chance of a shower or thunderstorm each day this weekend. Temperatures will top out in the lower 80s with a mix of sun and clouds. With high pressure sitting to the north of D.C., the track of the low is still up in the air, so it probably won’t be a completely dry weekend for everybody, but not a washout by any means. Eventually, the low will weaken and a cold front will move through Monday into Tuesday. This will give us another shot of some wet weather for early next week.
