D.C.-Area Forecast: Heat and Humidity Mostly Manageable, With Wednesday Being Exception

The coming week brings with it primarily manageable heat and humidity levels for the D.C. area. Though, forecasts show Wednesday standing out as the most uncomfortable day, as temperatures are expected to surge into the 90s and potentially near 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Beginning of the Week: Cooler and Less Humid

The start of the week is predicted to offer comfortable weather conditions. On Monday, it was reported that refreshing breezes from the northwest gradually ushered drier, more comfortable air into the region. Any early-morning rain gave way to increased sunshine. Temperatures capped at seasonable mid-80s to around 90 degrees. Although there was an afternoon shower or thundershower possibility, it remained slight.

Tuesday’s Forecast: Sunshine and Moderated Humidity

Tuesday’s temperatures anticipated to be slightly hotter, with highs near 90 to a few mid-90s spots. Thankfully, the humidity remained relatively comfortable, with the dew points primarily in the 50s. The afternoon was marked by more noticeable southwest breezes, which were, for the most part, light. Clear skies and uninterrupted sunshine made this day one for sunscreen application.

Wednesday: A day of Rising Temperatures

Wednesday brought uncomfortable heat and humidity back, with highs aiming for the mid-90s and nearing 100. Forecasts showed that the heat index could potentially peak near 105. An approaching cold front heightened the chance for showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon or evening, some of which could turn severe.

Thursday and Friday: Back to Comfortable Conditions

More comforting weather was predicted, post the Wednesday heat surge. Partly sunny days and more seasonable temperatures were forecasted, with highs in the mid-80s to near 90 and less humid conditions. There was a slight chance for showers and storms, more so on Thursday and Thursday night.

Weekend Forecast: Rising Heat and Humidity

The weekend’s heat forecast trended towards the hot side once more, with highs near 90 to the mid-90s. The potential for several showers and storms was more favored on Sunday than Saturday.

As we move through this high-temperature season, it’s crucial to stay hydrated, keep tabs on local weather reports, and prepare accordingly for any severe weather conditions. Stay safe, D.C.!
