Dangerously hot for the weekend with highs in the 90s! Relief is on its way for the workweek, but we may see a few more clouds to begin the week. Highs could break records today, especially in Hagerstown, Dulles, and Baltimore. Continued heat continues into Sunday, but a front comes and cools us off Monday and Tuesday.
We may see a shower or storm Sunday. The Storm Prediction Center has the region under a marginal risk of severe weather for the afternoon and early evening as the front pushes through. Expect a storm or two to have high wind associated with the passage.
Temperatures dive closer to average Monday and Tuesday, with highs in the mid-70s! We rebound into the 80s Thursday and Friday with a hit or miss chance of a shower or storm. Stay tuned!
Here is a look at your 7-day forecast:
Saturday: Near record-breaking high temperatures with partly cloudy skies. Highs will be in the low to mid-90s.
