DC Region under excessive heat watch, 100-degree weekend weather expected

Heading into the weekend, the majority of the D.C. area has been placed under an excessive heat watch.

There is a chance for pop-up storms on Saturday afternoon and evening primarily over the mountains, and Northern Maryland may see one or two. The best chance for storms this weekend will be the second half of Sunday ahead of a cold front with two possible rounds of storms that could reach the I-95 corridor, in the afternoon and then again in the evening.  

With the hot, humid, airmass in place, there is a chance some storms could become severe. The biggest threat would be damaging winds.  The Storm Prediction Center has issued a Marginal Risk for Sunday.
