Storm and heat relief

Warming up today, more humid by tomorrow

DC-area forecast: Seasonably warm today with limited storm chances over weekend

Independence Day, July 4th, will be hot, dry, sunny and breezy. Readings climb to the upper 80s nearly each day. Lows will only drop into the 60s and 70s.

By Friday, clouds will lower and thicken and rain over the mountains (starting pre-dawn) will gradually push east and set the tone for the day. We're tracking the possibility for showers and storms today.

Great relief from the heat today as highs are back in the 80s and 90s thanks to our latest cold front. It will feel like the upper 90s due to the humidity.

Both Monday and Tuesday look good with a mix of sun and clouds and seasonable temperatures.

Warming up today, more humid by tomorrow

Sunday: Chance for a morning/midday shower/thunderstorm. Highs again in the upper 80s, with a heat index value in the mid 90s. Ahead of the front, a push of very warm and more humid air slides in. Dew point temperatures will be in the 60s and lower 70s and that means it will be an uncomfortable day outdoors. Wind: SE/S 5-10. Low: 68.

Tomorrow: Clouds and sunshine.

While the second line of showers and storms aren't looking as healthy as they were this morning.

Tomorrow will be dry and sunny with highs in the mid-upper 80s. Winds out of the southwest at 7-15 miles per hour, with gusts at 20 miles per hour. Some higher resolution guidance models suggest most of the storm activity will pass by to the north of CT tomorrow. Dew points will also be in the low 70s which means the reprieve from the humidity is coming to a harsh end.
