This “lifting” action in the atmosphere increases instability and, in turn, should enhance the chances for afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms – some of which can produce heavy rainfall amounts in a short period of time. A batch of showers and storms already affected parts of the Mid-Atlantic region earlier today, but they have since pushed to the north, and numerous new showers and storms are headed this way from the eastern Ohio Valley/western Mid-Atlantic as upper-level support moves into the region. One other note, heavy rainfall is of primary concern later today and tonight, but also on the table with any strong or even severe thunderstorm are damaging wind gusts and even an isolated tornado or two. The threat of heavy showers and strong storms will wind down later tonight and Tuesday promises to be a calmer day with some sunshine, quite warm conditions and perhaps an isolated shower or storm. 

Looking past tomorrow, it appears the worst stretch of heat and humidity will makes its way into the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast US for the mid and late week with afternoon highs likely in the low-to-mid 90’s from DC-to-Philly-to-NYC and not much respite at night with lows in urban areas in the upper 70’s.  The heat in recent days has been confined to the central part of the nation, but it will finally make a push to the northeast for the mid and late week time periods. A weak frontal system could enhance chances for showers and thunderstorms on Thursday, but much of the second half of the week should be rain-free to go along with those expected hot and humid conditions. The weak front is likely to stall out in the region this weekend and that suggests there will be little to no relief in the hot and humid conditions which could very well persist right through Saturday and Sunday.
