Discussion

High pressure will continue to control the weather around here right into the early part of next week and overall conditions today will be very comfortable for this time of year. The high pressure system will shift to the east coast from the Midwest on Friday and then to a position off the coast this weekend and that movement will allow for the development of a low-level flow of air out of the southwest. As a result, it should turn noticeably warmer around here by tomorrow afternoon and then the humidity will climb markedly this weekend. Temperatures by the weekend will flirt with the 90 degree mark along the I-95 corridor and a shower or thunderstorm cannot be completely ruled out on either weekend day.
