High pressure offshore and a cold front approaching from the west will give us a southwest flow again of hot and humid air. There will be a chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm, but a better chance tonight as the cold front crosses the area.
High pressure building into our area from the north will give us a much needed relief from the heat and humidity of the last several days. It will be cooler and much less humid. Skies will become mostly sunny after some early morning cloudiness.
Mainly dry and seasonably cool weather this weekend, Saturday will be mostly sunny but there will be a low chance of an afternoon shower on Sunday.
