Still a bit muggy but drier air is on the way.

Today: Lots of clouds with some sunshine developing

Highs: near 85° | Wind: South 5-10 mph

Overnight: Partly cloudy, cooler and not as muggy

Lows: 55°- 64° | Wind: North 5-10 mph

Thursday: Sunny and less humid.

Highs: around 80° | Wind: North 5-10 mph

A cold front will be moving across the region this morning. While skies are mostly cloudy, we will see areas of sunshine develop and it will still be a bit muggy for a while. But drier air will arrive later this afternoon and evening. High pressure will build into the area briefly and provide beautiful weather tomorrow, the last Day of May. On Friday, the first day of June, skies will be sunny until the afternoon. That is because the next storm system and cold front will be getting close to the region and that will increase our chance of showers and thunderstorms. Showers could linger into Saturday morning.

The next push of drier air will bring clearing skies to the area Saturday afternoon. Highs will reach the middle 70s. And partly cloudy and comfortable conditions will continue through the day on Sunday.
