Normal Weekend Ahead


Over the weekend, temperatures will unfortunately be returning to just under normal temperatures as an area of high pressure moves over our area this afternoon.  With this area of high pressure moving into our area during the day today, winds will remain out of the south to southwest bringing in warm moist air from the Gulf of Mexico.  This increase in moist air will cause the humidity and heat index to rise.  We will be expecting the temperatures to remain in the upper 80s with the heat index making it feel like the mid 90s.  The increase in moisture in the atmosphere also allows for isolated afternoon showers and thunderstorms to develop on Saturday and Sunday.
