No Holiday From Heat, Humidity
Any barbecue-busting thunderstorms?

Dan Stillman @ 11:15 AM

Memorial Day, like the first two days of the holiday weekend, will again feature a good deal of heat and humidity. Some potential also exists for another round of showers and thunderstorms, with the chance of severe storms focused from the District southward.


Forecast Confidence: Medium-HighQuite warm ... PM storms? Much like yesterday, the Washington area should see hazy sunshine with some noticeable humidity and highs in the upper 80s to near 90. We stand about a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms during the late afternoon and early evening. The best chance of severe storms would be from the District toward points south. I wouldn't cancel outdoor plans ahead of time, but I would keep an eye on the sky and have a Plan B just in case. Tonight, areas south of the Beltway could see storms linger into the late evening. Otherwise, partial clearing with lows in the low-to-mid 60s.


Forecast Confidence: Medium-HighWarm, less humid. The first day of the short work week is looking partly to mostly sunny with highs in the mid 80s and less humid. Showers and thunderstorms are possible in the mountains of West Virginia, but at this point I don't see them being able to advance toward the metro area.
