The summer sun will continue baking the Washington, D.C., area this week and next.

For the next 10 days, expect temperatures to soar near or above 90°. Humidity will be high, and storms are most likely in the afternoon and evening.

Monday and Tuesday were red-hot, with a heat index of about 100°. The rest of the work week will continue to feature extremely hot and humid conditions with a heat index around 100° each afternoon into the early evening hours.

Scattered storms, downpours and showers are likely Wednesday, mainly between 3 and 8 p.m. Heavy rain and damaging winds are the biggest concerns. Storms are likely again on Saturday.

Sunday will be cooler, with highs in the low to mid-80s and two chances for rain, in the morning and afternoon.

D.C. activated its heat emergency plan and will have cooling centers open Wednesday. Go here if you or someone else need someplace to go to cool down.
