The rain is over, for now.  More rain this weekend, but finally relief from the sticky air!

Tonight: Mostly Clear; Fog Developing

Lows: 64-70° | Wind: Light

Friday: Partly Cloudy, Hot & Humid; Stray PM T'storm Possible

Highs: Near 90° | Wind: S 5-10 mph

Saturday: Becoming Mostly Cloudy With PM T'storms Likely

Highs: 82-88° | Precipitation: 80%

After some suprise early morning showers, skies gradually cleared late in the day and will remain clear and dry overnight.  With a lot of moisture from the earlier rain, expect fog to develop and linger through about 9am Friday morning.  Highs will climb into the upper 80s to low 90s tomorrow afternoon and it will still be quite muggy.  With the afternoon heating, it's also not out of the question for a pop up thunderstorm to develop, but it won't be anything widespread.

Changes are coming for the weekend!  A strong cold front will slide through late Saturday and will finally bring some relief from the heat and humidity.  Saturday morning will be dry, but after noon rain chances will increase.  Rain and thunderstorms will be likely late in the day and overnight.  By Sunday, the sunshine returns and you'll notice the difference outside!  Highs will climb into the upper 70s and it will feel very comfortable with low humidity.
