8:45 AM Nice today then gradual increase in warmth and humidity this weekend

High pressure will supply us with plenty of sunshine to close out the work week and temperatures will remain rather pleasant. There will be a slight increase in warmth and humidity this weekend as the high slips off the east coast and an increasingly warm and moist flow of air out of the southwest develops across the region. Weather should be fine for the Phillies/Mets series throughout the weekend at Citi Field. There are signs that significant hot weather could expand into the Mid-Atlantic late next week from the nation’s mid-section where it will bake early in the week. Today- mostly sunny, still pleasant, mid 80’s

Tonight- clear, comfortable, lows in the upper 60’s

Sat- mostly sunny, still pretty pleasant, but a bit warmer than today, upper 80’s
