Another front passes through the area overnight, and under clearing skies, lows will hold in the 60s around the Beltway to the Bay, the 50s most areas northwest of I-95 (Cumberland Valley/Blue Ridge), and the mid-40s across the Allegheny Front. Wednesday through Thursday night, the weather is looking wonderful, by being mostly sunny during the day, with a starry sky at night. Below normal temperatures and low humidity are expected across the region, as most locations will be in the lower to middle 70s Wednesday, then middle to upper 70s Thursday.
By Friday and into the upcoming weekend, the days and nights look to return to more of a summer-like pattern, with hotter and more humid weather returning into the area. Current thinking is that Friday, even though it will be muggier, will still turn out dry. Friday evening and heading into Saturday morning; however; more clouds will make a return, and there is a decent chance for showers and storms too. Beyond Saturday, forecast details become highly uncertain as model trends have shown the potential for a tropical cyclone to track across the Southeast or southern Mid-Atlantic states during the first half of next week. In summary, the weekend and first half of next week are looking hotter and more unsettled, so stay with WDVM for the very latest.
