DC area forecast: muggy with a chance of storms through Friday before gradual drying over the weekend

A more subjective rating of the day’s weather on a scale of 0 to 10.

4/10: Storms are likely to be a threat; high humidity makes you sweat.

  • Today: Mostly cloudy with isolated showers and thunderstorms, very muggy. Maximum scores: 83 to 87.
  • This evening: Damp with scattered showers and storms. Lows: 67 to 73.
  • Morning: Humid with showers and storms likely. Maximum scores: 84 to 88.

It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity! Highs in the 80’s are not noticeable, but humidity is oppressive for the next two days. Storms are definitely Whack-a-Mole style and pop up here and there. A slow-moving cool front finally comes to our rescue over the weekend, cleaning us up and drying us out for Sunday and Monday.

Today (Thursday): The risk of a shower or thunderstorm lasts all day, but most are short-lived and a fluke, making a radar app a great companion. Despite the clouds, the heights continue to rise until the mid-80s. Humidity is sauna-like with dew points in the mid 70’s. Breezes are minimal. Confidence: Medium-High

This evening: Clouds will hold out through the night, but showers and storms should clear up by late evening. Winds are almost calm and lows hold in the upper 60’s to low 70’s. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow Friday): Most of the stronger storms should occur far south of the area, but high humidity will keep the chance of pop-up showers and storms contained, particularly in the afternoon and evening. Highs hit the mid 80’s and the breeze is still absent. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow night: A cool front could finally start creeping into the area and this could serve to trigger more numerous storms with the potential for some notable downpours. The showers keep the humidity painfully high as the lows stay in the upper 60s to the low 70s. Confidence: Medium

Saturday is hopefully a transition day as drier air should invade the area. Given how slowly this is likely to happen, it’s best to plan for further chances of scattered showers/storms later in the day. With a bit of luck there should be enough breaks to have some time for excursions in the afternoon. The highs are mostly in the low 80s. Skies are finally clearing overnight with lows in the low to mid 60’s. Confidence: Medium

Super summer weather sets in Sunday and Monday with low humidity and sunny skies. We’re in the low 80’s for highs, and the low to mid 60’s for lows will feel great. Confidence: Medium
