Today's Forecast: Less Humidity

A cold front finally swept off shore last night, putting an end to the humidity. Today is dry and quite warm, with temperatures getting into the 80s. And it will even be nicer at the beaches if that's something you're able to do.

It will be more comfortable for sleeping tonight, with readings getting down to the 50s to near 60 degrees. It'll take a little while for things to cool off, but once the sun sets, I think that if you have your windows open it's probably cool enough.

Saturday is my pick of the weekend, with temperatures near 80 degrees, lots of sunshine and relatively light winds. Temperatures will cool off for Sunday, staying mainly in the upper 60s and lower 70s. There's going to be a lot more cloudiness as well, although I do expect periods of sunshine.

Monday is almost a carbon copy of Sunday in terms of temperature and sky cover. There could also be a shower in the afternoon on either day, but not much rain at all.

It looks as though the dry weather continues for much of next week, and temperatures will be on the upswing along with an increase in humidity. Depending on your perspective, the dry weather is great for things like outdoor dining and outdoor activities, but for gardeners and other folks that need water, this may end up being a very long summer.
