Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated at 6:35 a.m., May 28, 2015 

The heat and humidity continues, with temperatures nearing 90 degrees today. There will be another chance of some scattered showers and storms as a cold front approaches the region and almost becomes stationary over the area, washing out by this evening. We are still watching for the potential for heavy downpours today but the threat of severe storms is minimal. We can’t rule out a few lingering showers late as a piece of energy tries to move through the region, but for the most part, overnight skies will be partly cloudy and temperatures will drop to around 70 degrees.  Back to the heat and back to the humidity once again tomorrow. Expect a mix of sun and clouds with some isolated chances of afternoon storms. Isolated chances of storms continue into Saturday. Expect a very hot and humid day with most of our area remaining dry. For now, most of the isolated activity on Saturday afternoon/evening looks to be well west of Washington D.C. There’s a better chance of storms  Sunday, as a cold front will be crossing through the region bringing some rain with it. There could be a few showers in the morning but most of the activity will trigger in the afternoon. A good chance for some torrential rains in spots as well as some strong to severe thunderstorms. Humidity will drop off through Sunday afternoon and by Monday, temperatures will only top out around 70 degrees. Easterly flow will set up for the beginning of next week as high pressure wedges down the east coast from the north east. We’re looking at the chance of rain showers Monday and Tuesday, and possibly Wednesday, as we will have a stable air mass, with temperatures at the beginning of next week in the 70s.
