    4 things to know about the weather:


    #1:  Cooler Few Days Ahead

    #2:  Watch For Falling Humidity

    #3:  Storms Arrive Wednesday

    #4:  High Heat By Weeks End


    High pressure over Lake Superior will move towards New England today and that cool, comfortable Canadian air mass will bring us a couple near perfect summer days before the DC summer sweat-box arrives this weekend.  As the cooler air filters in today you will notice a quick drop in humidity levels and afternoon highs will hover in the low/mid 80s.  Skies will become clear this evening and temperatures will fall into the low/mid 60s by Tuesday morning around the DC Metro area and the 50s for Northern Maryland and the Shenandoah Valley.  Tuesday will be near perfect summer weather with sunny skies, low humidity and cooler than average temperatures, with highs in the low 80s.  That Canadian high pressure will move away from the US on Wednesday and will be replaced with air from the deep South.  Rain and thunderstorms will become likely by Wednesday afternoon and evening after reaching high temperatures in the mid 80s.  That rain chance will carry into the first half of Thursday before things start to dry out and heat up.  Highs on Thursday will be in the upper 80s.  Starting on Friday and lasting all the way through the coming weekend (and perhaps well into next week) we will be in the thick of DC summer weather.  Increasingly hazy, hot and humid weather will settle in with afternoon highs in the low/mid 90s and overnight lows falling only into the mid 70s. Enjoy the next 2 days...This is likely to be the end of what has been a very cool and rainy period over the past 6 weeks
