Forecast Discussion:

Not as cool overnight but cool enough to rest the A/C one more night. Lows will fall into the 50s in the 'burbs and around 60 in D.C.

Friday will be pleasant with a few more clouds and a tad more humidity. Friday looks dry now and outdoor plans look safe. 

We'll have a summer-like weekend with both the heat and humidity on the rise. Each day will carry a slight chance for a shower or storm, but outdoor plans are mainly safe, especially in the morning and early afternoon.

Highs will be in the upper 80s Saturday and around 90 Sunday. Outdoor plans look safe with only isolated storms possible in the late afternoon and evening.
