Friday is still in the mid-90s with spotty rain and storms midday and then scattered storms in the afternoon to evening hours as a front finally moves through.

The humidity now doesn’t drop until Friday night, but the rest of Father’s Day weekend should feel much better. Highs are in the upper 80s, which is just over average, but the humidity is at a refreshing level, which also means the mornings are cooler!

In the First Alert 8-Day Planner, the heat looks to build right back to 90s next week. We are nearing 100 degrees by next Wednesday!
