    In the wake of heavy rain and a gusty thunderstorm from Monday, much cooler weather will follow for the balance of the week around Washington, D.C.

    Much cooler and less humid air is in store for the region Monday night through Friday, marking an end to nearly a week with daytime highs in the 80s and lower 90s.

    In many cases high temperatures this week will be 20 degrees lower than much of last week.


    Normal temperatures this week range from highs near 70 with nighttime lows in the middle 50s. Temperatures will be near to slightly above average.

    Lingering moisture, some of which is associated with Tropical Rainstorm Karen will be watched for possible impact later in the week.

    A storm system will form along the mid-Atlantic coast as early as Wednesday.

    Rain could creep back in on one or more occasions during the second half of the week. Even if rain does not make the trip in from the Atlantic, there will be episodes of clouds.
