DCA is sitting at +4.0 through the first 12 days of July, with all but two of those days with highs of 91-97. Today was another warm day as temperatures climbed to about 93 before the storms hit.
Tomorrow through Sunday looks to be more seasonal to even slightly below normal, with highs in the mid to upper 80s. While not necessarily cool, it’s certainly a nice period of relief, especially considering what lies ahead.
Another warm up is on the way during the second half of next week, when highs could climb into the 95-105 range (according to the latest model runs and trends). Whether these hot temperatures will verify or not remains speculative since it is still in the medium range, but all of the medium-range signals point to hot, hot, hot weather next week.
