Temperatures return to near normal over the weekend with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
Soak in this comfortable weather while you can! This weekend shapes up about as fine as you’ll get this time of year. This weekend in 2020, it was muggy but not much hotter. In the here and now, dry air makes it feel as nice as it looks! We get nice cool mornings and pleasantly warm afternoons, but it’s not going to last much longer!
A strong ‘high’ that has kept it cool and dry around here lately (9.2ºF below average for the past five days) moves eastward over the Atlantic on Sunday. That sets up a return flow (south wind) over the South through the first part of next week: raising the humidity and setting up a chance of some spotty showers and storms around here.
