Rain chances increase as the week continues

WASHINGTON, DC — The warm, muggy weather pattern will continue through the upcoming weekend. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight and some patchy fog will develop.

Rain chances will go up considerably tomorrow and Thursday, as numerous showers and thunderstorms spread across the DMV. This will be the result of a strong southerly flow of tropical moisture east of Subtropical Depression Alberto.

The end of the week will end on a hot note, with more sunshine on Friday. However, we’ll still have afternoon storm chances.

An upper level low spinning across the Mid-Atlantic over the weekend will keep the overall pattern unstable, with scattered showers and thunderstorms around. Cooler air will gradually arrive, with highs in the 70s by Sunday.
