Today & Tonight: Starting off this Friday morning muggy. There is a thick layer of cloud cover locking in the heat and humidity to start the day. Temperatures now in the upper-70s and by the afternoon we will continue to watch them climb into the mid-90s. Not everyone will see rain, but if you do, you will be feeling a whole lot cooler than those that stay completely dry. Showers today will be spotty. Isolated areas could see downpours, it’s all dependent on when and where showers develop. Overnight, more clouds will move in and your Saturday will start the same.

Up Next: Southerly winds will lock in our forecast day after day. Saturday will start with temperatures in the upper-70s and cloudy skies. By the afternoon, clouds will be around the area and sneaky showers will begin to develop. Daytime highs for parts of the area will hit the mid-90s, but those that see showers early will stay a bit cooler. By Sunday we are expecting some slight changes to the pattern.

There will still be plenty of dry time during the day, but this is just your early heads up. If you have outdoor afternoon plans, you should have indoor back-up plans.
