After Hurricane Arthur battered its way up the East Coast, Washington, D.C., will have a welcome stretch of sunshine for the next several days.

Temperatures will continue to rise and hit near 95 F early next week. The higher temperatures will be accompanied with a humid feel for some days.

Skies will be mostly sunny with some clouds and light breezes possible.

Overnight temperatures will follow the same trend and could even reach the upper 70s toward the start of next week. Thunderstorms could reappear midweek.

With many outdoor activities planned this weekend, those spending extended amount of time in the sun should take proper precaution and apply sunscreen frequently. As temperatures rise, it is important to stay hydrated as well.

Fans headed to Nationals Park for the end of the series against the Chicago Cubs should have hot weather to contend with when sitting in the stands, but clear skies and minimal chances of rain.

Warmer weather will stay consistent through much of next week.
