My Weather.Com Headline: “MONSTER High Pressure’s Hidden DANGER”

That danger: pleasant weather. Partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies will persist throughout the region. A slight chance of an isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible on Wednesday, but outside of that wet weather will stay in the Midwest thanks to high pressure to the northwest of Hurricane Cristobal in the Western Atlantic. Highs in the 80s today in western PA will drop off into the 70s through the middle of the week. Highs in the 80s today and Thursday in DC will be split by a chance at low 90s on Wednesday. Lows in the 60s in western PA tonight will drop into the 50s Tuesday night into Wednesday morning before potential for 40s moves into NW PA by early Friday morning. Lows in the 60s and low 70s will hold in the DC Region. Outside of that, have a terrific two-for-Tuesday! Enjoy folks!
