all right, i'm just full of good news tonight but you know what, it's summer in the city, we can handle this. high pressure has moved to the east and that's what we call the bermuda high pressure system and it's able to bring in a lot of that southerly wind. in fact the breeze has been fairly noticeable today. but the summer heat is back, a lot of places in the 80's. we just touched 90 at 5 o'clock for the first time today at reagan national. most other places still in the upper 80's. look at annapolis though so comfortable near the bay at 82 degrees. westminster a hot spot at 93 and cumberland also at 90 so this is how we're going to continue to roll. the humidity as i mentioned not terrible so that heat index which is a combination of the temperature and humidity only at 91. southerly winds continue. that's what we're noticing out there today and that will continue tonight as well as during the day tomorrow and i also have to mention there are a couple thunderstorms around. most of those are going to stay west of d.c. but as we get into a little bit

5:22 pm
for this time of year. what was abnormal is what we had for most of this week with temperatures being in the low 80's so yes, we hit 90 degrees at 5 o'clock and the we'll get our climate data here in about 10 or 15 minutes, see if it got any warmer than that but most places are in the 80's and the humidity as promised yesterday is not out of control when you look at the heat index it feels like 91 degrees so you know it's not terrible but tomorrow it's going to feel more like 95, temperatures will be right back near 90 if not the low 90's so here's a look at what you can expect for the rest of the evening. there are a couple of thunderstorms mainly well west. i'm not going to forecast them getting into the district and i'll show you those on radar in a moment. 85 degrees at 7 o'clock. by 9 o'clock, 82. and by 11 o'clock, 79 degrees. quick check of weather headlines so you know what to expect as we're heading into the weekend. first of all, mention that it's going to still be hot tomorrow. we're going to keep this hot stretch likely going right through the fourth of july. tomorrow a few more storms are possible. most of those will also
5:23 pm
form around the mountains and drift east just a little bit but not sure they'll be able to hold together to get too close in. now, there is a pretty good chance of storms on saturday. so, if you have outdoor plans, you'll want to keep you were fox5 weather app very handy because we expect thunderstorms to roll in any time after 2 o'clock and right through the district at about 5 o'clock. i'll show you the timing on that coming up a little bit later in terms of the futurecast so you can see where those storms begin and move to. and most areas i think right now are looking like they're going to stay dry as we look at sunday through tuesday. there could be an isolated storm on sunday but everything is moving up a little bit faster because the frontal boundary that will produce the storms on saturday is getting gg here a little bit sooner. sunday is going to be okay and fourth of july not looking like we'll be dealing with a lot of rain. if anything an isolated storm and that would be before fireworks. just a few cells trying to fire up today. most to our west. so you can see these trying to move into frederick county out of the martinsburg
5:24 pm
town. a brief downpour, not even seeing much lightning with those and then down to the south, this storm running just south of interstate 66 seems to be getting weaker. not expecting to get anything into town tonight. now the late week pattern is still hot obviously. storms are mostly west tomorrow but this frontal boundary getting close on saturday, a marginal risk has been issued by the storm prediction center for the possibility of one or two of these to be severe. the chances of us having to worry about too much else beyond that as we head on into the weekend should be pretty good. fourth of july at parade time maybe a spotty thunderstorm, 89 degrees. a very slight chance we're going put the odds at that about 20 percent. fireworks some clouds, 83 degrees. so so far so good as we head into the holiday weekend and even the weather is getting us in the mood for the fourth of july. that's a look at your holiday forecast. we'll have much more in the seven day a little bit

5:45 pm
coast here. 90 degrees for d.c. look at that wind direction. you can see our high pressure out there t new york city is 80 degrees though so they didn't quite get in on the hot stuff just yet and pittsburgh 84 degrees, richmond 86. but our temperatures around the region mostly feature places in the upper 80's to near 90 and as we combine in the humidity, we find that it's not that much higher than the actual temperature so we're still somewhat in bargain territory when it comes to the humidity. that will be a different story tomorrow and the because the folks at code orange air quality council of governments have assessed that risk, they have put a code orange air quality alert out for these areas and that means if you are sensitive to deteriorating air, you want to be taking it easy tomorrow during the peak heating and limit your outdoor activities. i'm sure we'll have several of those as we go through the year. tonight we have been keeping an eye on some weakening showers that have been moving mainly through western communities here. this one really weakening quickly a
5:46 pm
frederick so it will be just down to showers. another near the marshall area losing steam quickly, those aren't going to make it into d.c. tomorrow we'll find a few more in the mountains and trying to get a little bit closer but for the most part they'll have tough time doing that. for pool planner tomorrow and it should say friday, no the thursday but the numbers are right, 83 degrees at 11:00 in in the morning. by 2 o'clock we should be about 90 and then coming down at 5 o'clock but a couple of thunderstorms may be possible and again those western communities so you'll want to watch that. so, with those storms mainly west we'll still be hot but saturday the chances of seeing a thunderstorm really go up to about a 40 or 50 percent chance in the afternoon because of a frontal boundary that will be getting closer to us and taking advantage of that heat and humidity and in these green areas that's where the storm prediction center has placed a marginal risk for a severe storm. if you've got plans to be outside on saturday our

those couple of showers that they're seeing out to the west now but again, you can see they really dissipate and for the most part we go through friday on a dry note. by 5 o'clock, you can see that right around the same areas we start to see one or two showers or thunderstorms pop up again. saturday starts with a little bit of cloud cover. stays dry for awhile into the afternoon but this is kind of a healthy line of showers and storms showing up right at 5 o'clock and very much right along at least the northern portion of 95 into the district. so, we want to watch for the possibility of a couple of stronger storms in there that might feature heavy rain hail and gusty winds. that frontal boundary will be the trigger. the front is moving a little bit faster. yesterday we thought it might be around more on sunday but because the front doesn't quite move through it will be mainly to our north on sunday. it's a hit or miss chance of a thunderstorm. we'll still be in the low 90's as we head into sunday and it will still be on the humid side. stow ta take -- taking a look at your weekend forecast. only an

sunday with a temperature of 92 but you'll want to keep an eye on any of them this time of year because with the heat and humidity that be around some of them could get on the strong and gusty side. ocean city is going to be a good destination this weekend. for saturday maybe a couple of evening storms around but they will be spotty on sunday, low to mid 80's working through the weekend, water temperature 67. as we get into monday, it looks like temperatures should be nice, 86 degrees, lots of sunshine and a dry fourth of july for the beaches with a temperature of 85 degrees. so, definitely worth that trip. going across the bay bridge if you're heading on down there, have blast and be safe. the rest of us fourth of july in d.c. will feature a temperature of 92 degrees. isolated storm is possible but most of us stay dry but it will be on the hot side and just a little bit humid. your fox5 accuweather 7-day forecast, so we'll keep at least five of these days on our seven-day forecast into the low 90's or at 90. but then upper 80's by next wednesday and thursday. so, that will feel good as well. that's your seven-day
