Showers and storms continue the next two days

Once we get beyond the storms today and tonight, tomorrow is mainly a dry day with highs in the mid to upper 80s.

We reached 92 degrees at Reagan National yesterday, marking our 40th 90-degree day of the year, already four more than the annual average of 36. In August though, the outcome of fewer showers and thunderstorms is usually more heat. Today will be mostly sunny and warm. Some storms could be strong to severe with heavy rain and frequent lightning. Temperatures will top out in the lower to mid 90s. It will also be very humid tomorrow, so the heat index could exceed 105. Overnight lows will drop into the mid 60s.

AccuWeather says that, regardless of what the thermometer says, it will feel like the mid to high 90s on Monday and Tuesday. Thursday features some partial sun, highs in the 80s, high humidity and another round or two of pop up storms mostly in the afternoon, evening.

Rain and storms will wind down overnight and dry weather is back for Wednesday.

Sat: High: 94 Low: 72 AM showers/storms, then partly cloudy.
