More high heat expected in Northern Virginia this afternoon

Nova Forecast

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are possible today

HAGERSTOWN,Md. (WDVM) — GOOD FRIDAY! TODAY WON’T BE A WASH-OUT BUT BE SURE TO STAY WEATHER ALERT, JUST LIKE YESTERDAY, AS A FEW T-STORMS ARE POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON. THIS TREND OF WARM, HUMID AND UNSETTLED WEATHER WILL CONTINUE INTO SATURDAY AS WELL, AS HIGH-PRESSURE WILL REMAIN ANCHORED NEAR THE ISLAND OF BERMUDA, KEEPING THAT SOUTHERLY FLOW IN PLACE. JUST LIKE TODAY, POP-UP STORMS ARE A POSSIBILITY SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING.

ON SUNDAY, AND BEFORE A BACKDOOR FRONT DROPS IN FROM THE NORTH TO HELP REPRIEVE US OF THIS HEAT AND HUMIDITY, THERE COULD STILL BE A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR A PASSING SHOWER. THE BIGGEST CHANGE WILL COME SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY, WHEN A SLIGHT DECLINE IN TEMPERATURES, BUT A BIGGER DECLINE IN HUMIDITY WILL BE FELT ACROSS THE AREA. THE NICE FEELING WEATHER WILL QUICKLY DEPART; HOWEVER, AND TUESDAY AND THROUGH THE REST OF THE WEEK SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL BE BACK IN THE FORECAST.

HERE’S A LOOK AT YOUR EXTENDED FORECAST:

TODAY: PARTLY CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. HIGHS: 81-94. SOUTHWEST WINDS AT 5 TO 10 MPH.

TONIGHT: PARTLY CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS, MAINLY BEFORE MIDNIGHT. PATCHY FOG IS ALSO POSSIBLE. LOWS: 65-75. WEST WINDS AROUND 5 MPH.

Take precautions for the high heat this afternoon, as temps will be into the lower 90s and with the high humidity, it would feel closer to 100 degrees in Northern Virginia! – Scott Sumner
