Weather Forecast

A few showers lingered Saturday morning as the weather continues to heat up. Expect heat and humidity as temperatures climb into the mid-80s.

After a few morning showers, more showers and thunderstorms are expected through the afternoon and into the evening with heavy downpours, lots of lightning and some more flooding possible. This is all due to a cold front that will sweep through the area late Saturday night.

Eventually that front will stall to the south of the area for the next several days. Humidity lowers for Sunday with partly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-80s.

Another chance of rain returns early next week, but only isolated chances on Monday with better chances south of D.C. Temperatures stay in the 80s through next week.
