Happy Father's Day!
For the next few days, it's going to be hot. I mean we don't normally see these temperatures until late July, early August. However, there is a cooler light at the end of the tunnel Friday as we dip back into the mid 70's. For today, an isolated evening thundershower is possible. Organized thunderstorms are on hold until Wednesday as a frontal boundary reaches northern Virginia and holds for the rest of the week. Once we get there, afternoon thundershowers becomes more common resulting in a return to seasonal temperatures.

High pressure remains hovering over the Mid-Atlantic region today, and will continue until the middle of the week. Which for the most part, helps keep us dry and warm. However, it is serving a dual purpose by helping moisture creep back into the region out of the Gulf of Mexico. With increasing moisture and our warmer temperatures, the typical afternoon and evening shower and thundershower activity fires up for Wednesday and continues on into the weekend.
An upper level ridge acts to block most organized weather systems for the start of the week. There is a front that will move through the Upper Midwest and into the Ohio Valley by midweek. Even though it will not be close to our neck of the woods, this front will bring us some more widespread showers and thunderstorms. We should also feel a noticeable cooling trend hitting around Thursday and Friday. Friday and Saturday has the greatest chance for showers and thunderstorms.
