A Real Break in the wet and humid weather today as the dewpoints drop! Temperatures rebound tomorrow to 90 or higher and stay that way through next Tuesday when a front could usher in cooler air. Afternoon and evening Storm Chances also increase starting Sunday but these are not the widespread kind.
Summary: Pretty easy outlook for the short term. NICE today for summer. Highs should stay in the mid and upper 80s for VA, maybe a bit warmer far southern areas. We creep to 90 or above tomorrow and humidity comes back. Sunday re-introduces a threat for isolated thunderstorms. That threat seem a bit stronger Tuesday as a front comes through. Temps may then drop to below normal for a little bit from with highs in the lower and mid 80s from Wednesday into next weekend.
I am holding off on the long term tropical thoughts fro now. I am not seeing overwhelming evidence of the tropical system in the gulf.
Please note that many rivers and larger streams will approach flood stage or crest above them. Check with the Mid Atlantic River forecast center here http://www.erh.noaa.gov/marfc for updates on stages and when crests are expected. Also I like the NWS site for River information page found on their main site here: http://www.weather.gov/ahps/
