What we’re tracking:
- Cool, quiet night
- Friday storm chances
- Hotter and more humid over the weekend
Mainly clear conditions are expected through the night tonight, to go along with light winds. Those two factors will help temperatures fall back into the low 60s, with some spots bottoming out in the upper 50s.
Scattered shower and storm chances return tomorrow morning, as well as once again during the evening hours. Otherwise, mostly sunny conditions are expected as temperatures warm up into the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. However, it will be a bit more on the humid side, which will help drive up heat index values into the low to mid 90s.
That humid air will be short lived though as we dry things right back out for the start of the weekend with mostly sunny skies and 90 degree weather for Saturday. Sunday looks to be much of the same, but some higher humidity may creep in, as well.
As for the total solar eclipse for Monday, partly cloudy skies look to be the case during the early afternoon. Isolated rain chances are possible for Monday, but raindrops don’t look to fall during the eclipse.
