After a prolonged heat wave with high heat and humidity, more comfortable air will settle into the state for today and the weekend.
Dew point temperatures will go from the uncomfortable 70s, to the 50s and even 40s for parts of the state this weekend. That dry air will be combined with temperatures that will be closer to 80 as the weekend approaches.
Dry weather is expected to continue through the weekend. A widely scattered shower cannot be ruled out on Saturday but the drought situation across the state looks to worsen over the next several days.
