After morning fog, we should be partly sunny for the rest of the day. A few extra clouds overnight will keep us warm. Lows will be in the into the upper 60’s and lower 70’s, but a chance of cloudier skies along with a better chance of showers and storms will come as we head into Thursday into Friday.
Instability will continue Wednesday into Thursday. Isolated to scattered pop-up thundershowers are possible Wednesday while storms will be more likely for Thursday. Areas to the northwest are under a marginal risk for severe weather. This region is mainly in the Mountains of Maryland and Pennsylvania; however, southeasterly winds may kick up the threat level as we go into Thursday.
The current weather sounding is showing a good bit of instability this Wednesday morning. Anticipate continued atmospheric volatility as we head into Thursday as dewpoint temperatures remain in the upper 60’s and 70’s. Friday will bring early morning showers before trying to clear out during the afternoon. Slightly muggy conditions will follow into Friday and especially Saturday as temperatures rise into the 90’s with plenty of sunshine.
There will be an isolated chance of showers Saturday. Most of us will remain dry over the weekend as increase heat and humidity create a mini-heatwave as temperatures will be close if not at 90 over the weekend and into next week.
Hot and muggy conditions are in for Monday, but a chance of showers will come Tuesday or so and hopefully cool us off during the mid to latter part of the week. Stay tuned for the latest developments.
