WASHINGTON — Hot and humid over the weekend with more storms on the way.

Quick Forecast:
Sunday: Partly cloudy and hotter with isolated p.m. storms. High: 92.
Sunday Night: Partly cloudy with a stray shower. Low: 75.
Monday: Mostly sunny and hot. High: 94.

Forecast Discussion: 

Sunday heats up again with highs in the low to mid 90s with  heat index values near 100 degrees. We only have a chance of isolated p.m. storms. Those storms could produce heavy rainfall and gusty winds.  Most of the storms will stay west of D.C. along I-81. 

By Monday most of the cloud cover and rain will move out. The afternoon will be clear, sunny, and hot. High temperatures will make it into the mid 90s and with the humidity it will feel even warmer than that. The heat index Monday will be close to 100 degrees. Be sure you are staying hydrated!  We could still see an isolated storm pop up Monday, but the majority of the day will be dry.
