Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey's First Warning Forecast:
After a big taste of summer this week, we are returning to spring weather just in time for the weekend.
Expect high temperatures pretty close to normal in the upper 70s and lower 80s on Saturday and Sunday and we will enjoy lower humidity values as well.
We will kick off the weekend on Saturday with plenty of cloud cover. But the clouds should slowly move out and we will end up with mostly sunny skies in the afternoon. Expect high temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
Sunday should be a degree or two cooler and also breezy thanks to what will likely be a Tropical Storm Alex moving by to our south.
With the close pass of Alex, we are holding on to a 20% chance for a stray shower on Sunday and again on Monday. And we expect a higher risk for rip currents at all of our area ocean beaches.
And it does look like we will kick off the workweek on a mild note with partly cloudy skies and high temperatures back in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
But that is where the mild weather ends. It gets much warmer and muggy here Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with a good chance for showers and thunderstorms especially Wednesday and lingering into Thursday.
Behind a cold front milder weather returns by Friday.
