Friday is a splendid end to the work week. Not only will the humidity be gone, but lots of sunshine is also expected and it will still be very warm, with temperatures well into the 80s.
Temperatures will reach about 80 around lunchtime and climb into the mid-80s during the afternoon. Lower humidity will make for much more comfortable weather after three days of oppressive humidity and our first heat wave of the year.
Temperatures reached 93 on Tuesday, 95 on Wednesday and 90 on Thursday.
A pattern change is responsible for the more comfortable conditions that arrive today and last several days. The jet stream will sink south and suppress the high heat and humidity to the southeastern United States.
A mix of sun and clouds is anticipated on Saturday. Given the nature of the upper-level flow, there can be an isolated storm later in the day. Temperatures will be in the upper-80s to near 90 degrees.
Sunday looks to be the pick of the weekend at this point, with mostly sunny conditions and temperatures again in the mid-80s to near 90 degrees.
Early next week looks unsettled with the chance of a shower or thunderstorm Monday and Tuesday with temperatures in the mid- to upper-80s.
