Not as hot on Friday, but that won’t last long….Get ready for the heat and humidity to come back in full effect over the next several days.  In fact, we’re tracking highs in the 90s, but because of the humidity, it will feel much hotter.

But first, on this Thursday night, expect comfortable conditions.  We’ll see overnight lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s under partly cloudy skies.  A stray sprinkle or shower is possible, but most areas will be dry.  On Friday, humidity values will increase just a tad, but for most of us, it won’t feel miserable outside. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s under a mix of sun and clouds.

The heat will be on this weekend! We’re expecting highs on Saturday and Sunday in the lower 90s. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds and a chance of summer-time showers and storms both days.  Widespread rain is not expected.  The summer sizzle will continue into the start of next week, too, with highs in the 90s.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Stray Shower/Sprinkle (10%). Low temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.

Friday: Sun and Clouds. High temperatures in the mid 80s. Winds: E/SE 5-10 mph.

Saturday: Sun and Cloud Mix. Chance of Showers/Storms (20-30%). High temperatures in the lower 90s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.
