Humidity, rain chances return for the weekend
A southerly wind brings back the summer heat
- Easterly winds keep it cooler than average Friday
- Muggy weather returns this weekend
- Better rain chances next week
Temperatures will not be as cool overnight thanks to the southerly wind, rising humidity and clouds. Expect lows in the 60s for most.
SATURDAY - SUNDAY
High pressure off the Mid-Atlantic coast will bring in a gradual increase in clouds Saturday morning thanks to a southeast wind off the Atlantic ocean. A few scattered showers are also possible, mainly east of the Blue Ridge. Temperatures will top out in the mid 80s with muggy conditions. Sunday looks similar with morning clouds and some afternoon sunshine with highs in the upper 80s.
A more active and humid weather pattern will kick off early next week. No day looks like a wash-out, but we will return to the days of daily afternoon showers and storms. It appears the best chance of showers and storms will be in the western mountains thanks to the additional lift the mountains provide. Afternoon highs will reach the mid and upper 80s with areas along and east of the Blue Ridge back into the 90s at times.
