Weekend begins as a scorcher, and ends cooler and more comfortable

WELCOMED CHANGE OVER THE WEEKEND

It’s a scorcher for the first half of the weekend. High temperatures quickly climb to the lower to middle 90s.

With the higher humidity, it will feel hotter, as heat indices near 100 during the afternoon. Our relief arrives when a cold front swings through overnight. While most of the day stays dry, isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible during the late afternoon, with more of a chance during the evening hours.

Once the front shoves south, a drier, more comfortable air mass settles in for the second half of the weekend. Highs are cooler in the lower 80s too. Plenty of sunshine is expected as high pressure builds in across the area.
