    Summerlike warmth will advance into the Washington, D.C., on Thursday and mark the beginning of a prolonged stretch of warm weather.

    A stalled front will bring a split between cool, ocean air and summerlike warmth across the mid-Atlantic; the District will be on the warmer side.

    High temperatures each day Thursday through Mother's Day will be in the 80s.


    Along with the warmth, it will turn rather humid during this period. The humidity will eventually contribute to an afternoon shower or thunderstorm on Friday.

    A slowly advancing storm from the Plains will combine with the humidity to bring more numerous showers and thunderstorms on Saturday. There is the potential for locally heavy rain and incidents of flash and urban flooding amidst a few episodes of rain-free weather.


    The wet weather will fade Saturday night as it turns drier just in time for Mother's Day. Sunshine will mix with clouds on Sunday as highs soar into the lower 80s.
