Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 12:30 p.m.. Aug. 29, 2015

High pressure, the source of our pleasant weather late this work week, will continue to slide east of the area Saturday. This will supply us with a southerly breeze of warmer and more humid air. With a good deal of sunshine, temperatures will climb into the middle to upper 80s with dew points–which directly measure moisture content in the atmosphere–creeping into the lower 60s. This will make it feel a bit more uncomfortable but still pretty manageable. Saturday night looks tranquil under a partly cloudy sky with mild lows near 70 in DC and 60s in suburbs. Sunday promises to be hotter and more humid as southerly breezes continue. While most of the day will be rain-free under a partly sunny sky, it’s possible we see a late-day thunderstorm west of Interstate 81. The trend of hot and muggy weather will persist into the start of the new work week with temperatures soaring into the lower 90s on Monday and the middle 90s Tuesday. When combined with the dew points, the “feels-like” temperature, or heat index, will be pushing 100 degrees or higher. The only relief would come in the form of a few cooling thunderstorms–mainly Monday–but those storms would likely be widely-separated…so not every community will get wet.
The weather at the Delmarva Beaches looks great this weekend with sunshine and temperatures in the 80s- don’t forget the shades and sunscreen!
Have a safe and enjoyable weekend!
