Monday will be the hottest of the next seven days but don’t expect a huge cool down. Highs will slip into the mid 90s on Tuesday and the low 90s for the second half of the work week. It will still be humid, so triple digit heat index values are still possible. A cold front will move in on Tuesday and stall over the Mid-Atlantic for most of the week. Expect a mix of sun and clouds with scattered showers and storms starting Tuesday and lasting through the work week.

Today: Mostly Sunny. Highs in the upper 90s. Heat index 105 to 110. Winds: SW 5-10

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Lows in the upper 70s. Winds: SW 5-10
