SUMMARY 4-DAY FOURCAST
Wednesday (8/2) thru Friday (8/4) will be a bit of a repeat of Tuesday, as high temps get into the 85-90+ degree range each day with spots hitting the low 90’s and a chance for afternoon and evening thunderstorms (Tuesday’s showers and t’storms weren’t a total surprise, but the intensity – both in wind and rainfall amounts – were very much unexpected and were a perfect reminder of what can happen with very little warning when temps warm up and there is any kind of movement in the air above, which was the case on Tuesday afternoon as an upper-level “shortwave trough” – basically a small frontal boundary but higher up – moved through the area and caused some very localized but powerful storms to occur).
Saturday (8/4) will find the region on the backside of the actual cold front (the long wave behind the shortwave from Tuesday), which means PERFECTION in the skies above for the DMV region. Think sunny, 80-85 and low humidity for the area (hint: think the same for Sunday, too, for what might be the best weekend of the summer!).
