Drying out after Saturday’s storms

Weather

A marginal risk of severe weather is in the works for Saturday. A few showers and storms may turn severe this afternoon and evening. Areas around the DC and Baltimore metro may see heavy downpours adding up to 1-3 inches. Drier conditions are coming our way.

Highs will cool down into the 80s Sunday, with highs back close to 90 Monday continuing through mid-week. We may see a pop-up shower or storm Wednesday before seeing more dry days Thursday and Friday with highs around 90.

Climate models suggest drier but cooler conditions to come as we head onto the backside of July, but we still have plenty of summer heat to go around.

Here is a look at your 7-day forecast:

Saturday: A marginal risk of severe weather is possible this afternoon and evening with a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will be in the 90s with heat index values in the 100s.
