An ocean storm well off of the East Coast will not threaten the Washington D.C., area through early this week leaving the area dry.

No widespread weather-related travel delays are expected early this week. In fact, it will be tranquil with a mixture of sunshine and clouds.

It will be warm for the most part early this week with afternoon highs in the upper 70s and low 80s. However, it will turn unusually warm Wednesday and Thursday as peak AccuWeather RealFeel temperatures approach 90 during the afternoons.

Rain-free weather will accompany the warming weather all this week.
