Temperatures will climb into the mid-70s by lunchtime, and will top off at 84 for your daytime high under partly cloudy skies. Humidity is up though so it will feel a few degrees warmer than it actually is.

Becoming cooler from Thursday, with early rain clearing to sunshine and showers, this ahead of fresher but fine weather on Friday.

Damaging winds and hail are the greatest severe weather threats Saturday afternoon. Winds may gust as high as 36 miles per hour. Torrential downpours leading to localized flooding could also be a possibility.
Mother Nature will be celebrating Mother's Day weekend with some record breaking heat and maybe some thunderstorms in the D.C. area. Lows in the mid 50s near the Nebraska border to the low-mid 60s elsewhere.
A almost stationary frontal boundary will sit across the region.
