After some clouds stream overhead and rain inches close to Washington, D.C., this weekend, a surge of warmth and humidity will usher in the new week.

A wedge of dry air along the I-95 corridor from New England to northern Virginia will continue to fight to keep rain away this weekend.

Showers from the Appalachians will approach but the majority should fizzle before reaching the nation's capital.

Some clouds will still stream overhead through Sunday as high humidity remains absent.

Monday is when the door will open for warmer and more humid air to return. That steamy air will hold firm through Tuesday and Wednesday as temperatures soar back into the 90s.
