Moving into next week, warm and humid conditions are expected on Monday and Tuesday followed by a strong cold front that will produce widespread thunderstorms on Tuesday afternoon and evening. Cooler and less humid air will overspread the Middle Atlantic states by the middle of the week with highs only in the upper 70s in Baltimore and Washington by Thursday.
