Washington D.C. is expected to experience a heat advisory from noon to 8 p.m., with temperatures soaring close to July’s maximum levels of discomfort. The combination of high temperatures and humidity will make outdoor activities challenging, as heat index values could exceed 105. A dying front might bring temporary relief on Friday but is unlikely to significantly lower temperatures.

The hot and humid weather is expected to persist, with little relief in sight. Hazy, hot conditions are forecasted for today, with temperatures in the mid-90s to near 100 degrees. Heat index values could surpass 105, making caution necessary for any outdoor activities. The evening might see isolated thunderstorms. Tonight, expect muggy conditions with lows in the mid-70s to near 80.

Wednesday’s forecast includes mixed sun and clouds, with temperatures remaining in the mid-90s and high humidity levels. Afternoon showers and storms are possible, but there is uncertainty regarding their coverage. Winds will pick up, with gusts up to 15 mph. Thursday will be slightly cooler, with highs in the low to mid-90s and a chance of hit-or-miss showers and storms.

Friday is expected to have the most significant chance for shower and thunderstorm activity, with heavy downpours possible. Moderate to high humidity will continue to affect the region. The weekend will trend drier overall, with scattered showers and storms still possible. Highs will reach the low to mid-90s on Saturday and the mid- to upper 90s on Sunday.
