A front in our area this morning will slide to our south today and we will have mainly cloudy skies this morning with some light showers with partial clearing late in the day. Temperatures will only be around 80 which is more than 10 degrees cooler than yesterday. The humidity will remain moderate with dew points in the 60s.
Saturday will be the nicest day of this weekend with plenty of sunshine and seasonably warm temperatures and continued moderate humidity.
The front to our south will move back into our area as a warm front on Sunday which will produce more humid conditions along with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms some of which may be heavy.
Very unsettled weather Monday through Wednesday as a trough of low pressure will be along the coast and Hurricane Isaias that will be moving up the east coast. Too early for details but some heavy rain and some wind is possible in our area, so stay tuned.
Fair weather should return by later next week with seasonable warm temperatures.
