WEATHER NEWS: PM Update: Lots of sun on Saturday, with a better chance of rain Sunday


Our blissful August weather had to come to an end sometime. Today was a good reminder it’s still summer. Highs in the upper 80s teamed up with humidity that has returned from vacation. That combo helped it feel like low 90s this afternoon. For the most part, it was a pretty average August day. After eight days of below normal temperatures, it was perhaps a little less enjoyable than average. The good news is it won’t get hotter in the days ahead.

Tomorrow (Saturday): This forecast becomes more favorable in closing. The rain risk should almost entirely stay south and east of the region, although a couple of showers aren’t impossible in the afternoon. Otherwise, it will be partly to mostly sunny, with highs in the mid- and upper 80s. Humidity will be moderate but may add a bit of a heat index in the afternoon.

Sunday: If Saturday trended better in closing, Sunday may be the opposite. Plan on lots of clouds and perhaps widespread showers and storms in the afternoon. Highs will make the mid-80s or so. Humidity will be on the high end as light south winds continue pumping moisture into the region.
