NBC Universal, Inc.

Another round of afternoon thunderstorms is possible Friday, making it four days in a row for the District.

The extra cloud cover will keep temperatures below 90° during the afternoon for only the second time in the last four weeks.

A severe thunderstorm warning is in effect for parts of Fauquier County and Culpepper County until 4 p.m.

Without as much daytime heating, the odds of afternoon storms are lower and the ones that do form will be less intense. Rain chances will fall from 80% in the morning to about 40% in the afternoon.

After a super-soaker storm dumped 2 inches of rain near Reagan National Airport and illuminated the sky with numerous bolts of lightning Thursday night.

A storm could pass over Friday afternoon.

Skies will try to clear out late Friday night.

On Saturday, most areas will stay in the 80s again but downtown D.C. might make it all the way to 90°. A pop-up shower can't be ruled out on Saturday, but rain chances are down at only 20%.

On Sunday and Monday, the intense heat will return. Afternoon highs will reach the mid-90s in D.C. and near 90° around the rest of the region.
