With dew points still in the 70-degree range, light to non-existent winds and decreasing sky cover there are some areas of fog this morning. Remember in thick fog, especially before daybreak, use your low beam headlights. That will make it easier for you to see and be seen.
After the fog lifts this will be a nice day. Skies will be partly cloudy to mostly sunny and dry for most of our area. Weak high pressure won’t be enough to stop a few spotty to isolated showers this afternoon with the lingering humidity. It looks like any pop-ups should be gone in time for Football Friday Night. The afternoon high will be in the mid-80s. Evening temps will be dropping to mid-70s from around 80.
The weekend will be very warm and humid with isolated showers and storms most likely on Sunday when a cold front moves through the region. Hopefully that will help keep tropical moisture to our east. Henri is projected to become a hurricane well off the southeast U.S. coast today.
