Today is anticipated to be much less humid than yesterday. That will provide some relief, though with sunny skies and highs in the upper 80s. There is another chance for a few showers late on Saturday and Sunday afternoon into Monday morning.

There is some good news in our future. After the heat wave has ended this upcoming week, conditions will return closer to average for much of next week.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely heading into tonight. They could last through the rest of the weekend into Monday. While Sunday will most likely not be a total wash-out, today looks a lot better for outdoor plans and activities. So, get outside and enjoy your last day of hot temperatures if this is your thing!

Drier weather returns Tuesday and beyond for next week.
