    DC: New Cool Push to Settle in Thursday, Friday

    By By Alex Sosnowski, senior meteorologist.

    Yet another push of cooler and less humid air will settle into the Washington, D.C. area prior to the weekend.

    While Bertha will still generate some rough surf and the risk of locally strong rip currents into Thursday along the Atlantic coast, the system was losing tropical characteristics.

    Spanning Thursday and Friday, both days will bring at least partial sunshine, slightly cooler-than-average air and lower-than-average humidity levels for early August. Typical highs this time of the year are around 88 F.

    A system is forecast to spread some rain and thunder across the Ohio Valley and southern part of the mid-Atlantic this weekend. If clouds and/or rain occur during much of either of the two weekend days, temperatures could be significantly lower-than-average and could be no higher than the 70s.
