D.C.-area forecast: Heat peaks today, with late-day storms possible through the weekend

A heat advisory is in effect from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., but only today is excessively hot. The weather for the next five days is going to be a little Florida-like by my reckoning. We heat up under mostly sunny skies, but with plenty of humidity, clouds pop up, and late-day showers and storms are a decent bet. Despite the storm chances, there’s still plenty of time for outdoor activities, but being caught in a storm is still a long shot.
