    • Gaithersburg Maryland VP2 backyard weather station report for Saturday, July 23, 2016   Saturday was another partly sunny, even hotter and humid day (highs in the upper mid 90s - lows in the early AM in the lower mid 70s). Dew points ranged in the uncomfortable low to upper 70s unfortunately. There was an early evening small thunderstorm coming out of PA and going through Frederick County (the county to the north of my county - Montgomery) but as it headed into Montgomery County it just dried up and totally fizzled out. All I got out of it was a few clouds and a small drop in the temps - still staying in the 90s however) Temperatures early this Sunday morning have unfortunately been the same as yesterday, only dropping into the mid 70s at 4:00 AM, and will probably lower no more than the mid 70s before sunrise in a few hours. Sunny and hot on Sunday and Monday with highs in the mid 90s on Sunday and upper 90s on Monday, lows in the mid 70s both nights. There is a 30 POP for showers/storms on both Monday and Tuesday (during the day and evening). On Tuesday skies will be partly sunny with highs in the mid 90s and sunny on Wednesday with highs in the mid 90s. Partly to mostly cloudy with lows in the mid 70s Tuesday and Wednesday night. Partly cloudy and hot on Thursday with a 30 POP for showers/storms during the day and in the evening, highs in the mid 90s, lows in the mid 70s and on Friday and Saturday partly cloudy with highs around 90° both days and a 40 POP for showers/storms, lows in the low 70s Friday night.
