D.C.-area forecast: Hot and humid, with storm chances increasing Wednesday

First Warning Forecast Summertime Storms

Wednesday brings a shower or storm really at any part of the day. We should get a break from the rain in the afternoon before another round of showers and storms materialize in the evening. Lows dip into the upper 70s. While no severe weather is expected, some storms still could produce some heavy rain and gusty winds reducing visibility. This weekend is looking murkier, though, with scattered thunderstorms, mainly in the afternoon and evening, and 80s for highs under mixed sky cover conditions. That will ensure mostly cloudy and possibly overcast skies for a majority of the two days.

It will continue to be hot and humid with a chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms each day, a typical August weather pattern for SC. It will still be humid with heat index values in the 90s. Highs in the upper 80s.

Tomorrow: Partly Cloudy, Scattered Showers/Storms (30%). High temperatures will be in the lower to middle 90s.

We are watching a non-tropical, surface low pressure system centered about 1200 miles southwest of the Azores. By Monday afternoon, the low is expected to move toward the north or NNE and continue that motion through Tuesday. This may give us a slightly better chance for rain.
