A more comfortable air mass will settle in for the weekend, with high pressure building down from Canada sweeping the higher humidity south behind a cold front. Sunshine mixed with passing clouds helped dry out moist lawns and fields soaked by recent downpours.
Temperatures were on the warm side (upper 80s), but will cool down on Sunday. Tropical Storm Cristobal is approaching the Gulf Coast, with landfall expected a little west of New Orleans late Sunday.
High pressure will glide east early next week, allowing temperatures to rebound into the mid-80s Monday. The hottest day of the season so far will likely come on Tuesday as an upper-level ridge strengthens over the East.
The weather the middle of next week will be affected by the future track of the remnants of Cristobal moving northward through the Mississippi Valley, before turning east and crossing the Great Lakes.
