Comfortable Friday evening, first heat wave of the year kicks off this weekend

Forecast

Heat wave builds this weekend...

TONIGHT: Mostly Clear. Lo 62.

SATURDAY: Sunny & Hot, Not as Humid. Hi 90.

SUNDAY: Sunny and Hot. Hi 91.

Skies will continue to clear this evening as the last burst of the departing front comes through the Midstate. Showers and storms will be much more numerous to our south and southeast this evening as our weather dries out ahead of the weekend. It should be a very nice evening locally with temperatures in the upper 70s! Again any rain chances are low as the bulk of the moisture has moved east of the region.

The upcoming weekend features building heat and lots of sunshine. Highs reach near 90° on both Saturday and Sunday and we expect more days in the 90s next week marking our first heat wave of 2021. In addition to the building heat, the weekend will stay dry and not that humid. Things change slightly heading into next week as the ridge begins to break down and the humidity creeps up. A stray afternoon storm will boil up Monday through Wednesday as temperatures stay in the 90s! It appears summer is here!
