Temperatures this afternoon will be in the mid 80’s with light winds and no chance of rain.  The humidity will stay pretty low which will make going outside today bearable as you will be able to sweat to stay cool.

Hotter and Dry Again Tomorrow

Taking off from the low 70’s tomorrow morning, temperatures will vault to the low 90’s in the afternoon.  With no rain chances, light winds, and low humidity, this would be a great day to hit the pool.

A small chance exists on Saturday for the storms to become severe.  The most likely impacts would be strong winds or large hail, so keep an eye on the weather if you are planning to enjoy your weekend outside.
