A disturbance is causing some showers and storms with heavy downpours, mostly well west of I-95. Isolated storms are producing hail and stronger wind gusts. The storms will continue tracking southwestward and weaken as the evening wears on. It will remain humid overnight with some fog and the chance for a shower or two. Lows will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
An area of low pressure across the Carolinas will bring moisture in from the east this weekend. This means some occasional cloudiness and the threat for a few scattered showers, especially on Saturday. The best chance for seeing rain will be across far southeastern Virginia. Elsewhere, there will be many dry hours throughout the weekend. It will be cooler with highs in the low to mid 80s, but temps may not break out of the upper 70s near the coast.
That low pressure will move far enough to give most of the area more sunshine and dry weather for Labor Day. There may still be a shower near Virginia Beach and an isolated storm in the mountains. Highs will range from near 80° along the coast to the mid/upper 80s inland.
Hot and humid weather will return for Tuesday through Thursday with highs in the lower 90s. A cold front late in the week will bring cooler weather for next weekend.
In terms of the tropics, Fred is weakening in the Atlantic and poses no problems for the Caribbean or United States. A new tropical wave off the west coast of Africa may develop into a depression or Tropical Storm Grace within the next few days. In the Pacific, Tropical Storm Kevin is feeding moisture into the southwestern United States, and a new storm may form south of Kevin. Ignacio and Jimena continue to move through the central Pacific.
