Play video Weather across the Northeast is detailed in the above video.

Heat relief is headed back to Washington, D.C., but there is good news for those who want summer warmth to hang on.

At least two more waves of cool air will roll into the region. One will arrive Sunday night and stick around into Monday. Another wave is due in late next week.

In between the cool waves, folks who like warmth and humidity will be satisfied as well with steamy air quickly to return for midweek.

The passage of a cool front Sunday will bring a stray thunderstorm late in the afternoon. The next front may bring potentially severe thunderstorms on Thursday.

The vast majority of the time will be free of rain for outdoor plans, projects and construction activities.
