Packing Heat + Top 10 List

Jason Samenow @ 1:00 AM

After a week of pleasant, below average temperatures, the heat and humidity is primed to make a return. This year's hottest temperatures are on the way this weekend.

Today will be on the warm side, but not oppressive. Expect highs of 85-89 with a touch of humidity.

On Saturday and Sunday, the heat really kicks in along with uncomfortable humidity. Highs should reach the low to mid 90s both days. The image above shows a computer model forecast for Saturday, indicating upper 90s are possible. That's a 99 right over DC. While I think that forecast is a bit aggressive, a few spots could see high 90s on Saturday. If you're out and about over the weekend -- perhaps at the Folk Life festival, stay hydrated and wear sunscreen -- UV levels are very high this time of year.
