Rain and storms passing through the D.C. area tapered off ahead of the morning commute, making way for a sunny Friday.
According to 7News First Alert meteorologist Veronica Johnson, a “phenomenal” weekend of weather likely awaits the region, with sunshine, low humidity and no hazy skies.
Mornings should be comfortable, with temperatures in the 60s that are expected to peak in the mid- to upper 80s during the afternoon — before potentially reaching record highs next week.
“Enjoy this weekend as next week’s heat begins to build with the hottest air of the season potentially moving through Wednesday through Saturday,” Johnson said. “First Alert Weather may be on Heat Alert as we are forecasting afternoon temps 95-98 degrees with heat index values in the triple digits.”
