Great weekend weather? Yes. But it’s still August and you’re probably waiting for the other shoe to drop. And it will.

But the fantastic weather will continue on Saturday and Sunday. We expect clear-to-partly cloudy skies each day, with morning lows in the 60s and highs in the mid 80s. Humidity levels will stay fairly comfortable, but we’ll start to see it creep up a bit on Sunday.

The heat returns on Monday, with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. And it’ll be a bit more humid.

Tuesday will be our most typical August day, with heat, humidity and a chance for afternoon storms. Expect highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s, with a 30% chance for late afternoon and evening storms.

And the heat and humidity will stick around through the remainder of the work week, with highs each day in the upper 80s and lower 90s and a 20% chance for storms each afternoon.
