More summer-like conditions will return to the Washington, D.C., area for a brief time before a front pushes through the region during the latter part of the weekend.

The high temperature on Sunday will climb into the upper 80s with an increase in humidity.

"However, the warmer and more humid air will provide fuel for thunderstorms, which can be strong Sunday into Sunday night," AccuWeather Meteorologist Mike Doll said.

Thunderstorms will be capable of producing torrential downpours, large hail, damaging winds and even a tornado for Sunday night.

One of those storms may be disruptive to the Phish concert on Sunday night at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.

The higher humidity will stick around into Monday before exiting the region on Tuesday.

Sunshine will be the rule into the middle part of the week, with daytime highs in the low 80s and overnight lows in the mid-60s.
