D.C.-area forecast: We heat up this week before a Friday front

Temperatures are on the rise as we open up this final month of meteorological summer before the heat breaks late Friday because of a cold front. But that front stalls over the area through the weekend offering late day storm chances. We'll have considerable cloud cover and the chance for showers and storms both days, especially in the afternoon and evening, but it shouldn’t be a washout with plenty of dry time. Wednesday and Thursday nights are plenty muggy, with lows in the 70s (maybe even hovering near 80 in the city Thursday)
