FORECAST IN DETAIL

Boy, if only we could keep this around all summer long. Seeing as we’re in late June, I’m hard pressed to find fault with this weekend’s comfortable humidity and highs in the mid-to-upper 80s. If you think it’s too good to last, well, you’re right. By tomorrow you’ll notice the humidity rising again, and shower/storm chances are back as well before drier air tries to move back in midweek.

Today (Sunday): Partly to mostly sunny skies greet us today as we finish out the weekend. We get to enjoy one more warm day with fairly low humidity before more of that classic mid-Atlantic mugginess moves back in. Highs reach the mid-to-upper 80s with light winds mainly from the northwest and west. Confidence: High

Tonight: A shower/t’storm complex coming from the west/southwest bears watching for the late evening or overnight, though it looks as if it may aim south of us and fizzle as it gets closer. Still, I’ll hold a 25% chance that it affects the area with some rain. Otherwise, skies are partly to mostly cloudy as lows bottom in the mid-60s (suburbs) to near 70 (downtown). Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow (Monday): As we head back to work, the weather may well match your mood as mugginess begins its return with humidity back up to at least the moderate range. A bit of upper-level energy may be just enough for a few showers or t’showers (30-40% chance). Highs should reach the mid-to-upper 80s under partly sunny skies. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow night: A warm front associated with low pressure in the Midwest keeps shower and storm chances around 30-40%. Expect skies to continue partly to mostly cloudy with muggy lows in the low-to-mid 70s. Confidence: Medium

A LOOK AHEAD

On Tuesday, the low pressure and associated cold front pass through. This sets up a pretty good chance (at least around 60% the way it looks now) for showers and thunderstorms at some point during the day. Despite increasing clouds, highs should hit the upper 80s to near 90 with plenty of humidity. Shower chances diminish Tuesday night with lows staying rather mild, from near 70 to the low 70s. Confidence: Low-Medium

For Wednesday, our frontal system may remain close enough to pop an isolated shower or two. But overall it looks like we’ll see increasing sun and decreasing humidity with highs back to the mid-to-upper 80s again. Confidence: Medium
