Mild weather this weekend

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Strong storms rumbled through Friday evening, but that cold front has since passed and things are calming down.

Those storms were ahead of a cold front, which will push east after they depart. This brings cooler and less humid air in for the weekend, which we'll feel starting Saturday. Highs will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s and dew points will be comfortably in the mid to upper 50s. It'll be similar for Sunday, though there is a slight chance for isolated showers and storms first in the early morning and again in the afternoon, but most of the day looks dry.

Temperatures cool a bit early next week when highs will be in the upper 70s, though that's only a few degrees below the average high of 81 and there will be plenty of sunshine along with comfortable humidity. Temps warm back up a few degrees near that average high later in the week, and that comes with a few thunderstorm chances.
