    Heat, humidity and heavy rain will remain held at bay around Washington, D.C., through Monday.

    Gone is the heavy rain that poured down Friday morning, replaced by dry weather into Monday.

    The weather will bring good drying conditions with the ground saturated and rivers swollen in the wake of the torrential rain.

    While small streams in the area are receding, runoff from the rain that ranged from 2 to 6 inches will continue to flow downstream into the larger rivers. Unprotected areas of the Potomac River can experience moderate flooding this weekend.

    Temperatures will average slightly below average with highs in the lower 70s and overnight lows are forecast to range from the 40s in the suburbs to the lower 50s in the District. Temperatures typically range from the middle 50s to the middle 70s this time of the year.

    The next chance of locally drenching showers and thunderstorms, along with a surge of warmer and more humid air, will come at midweek. Another stretch of more comfortable weather will follow for late week.
