FORECAST DISCUSSION:
A late spring weather pattern holds in the DMV the rest of the week. We'll see highs from the upper 70s to mid-80s through to Saturday. However, moisture is on the increase. An area of low pressure will bring showers/storms in the DMV overnight into Thursday, with a second chance for strong to severe storms Friday with an approaching cold front. The heaviest activity Thursday will remain along and west of I  81. We'll be able to take walks and runs in between the showers Thursday.
