An approaching cold front will bring a different weather pattern just in time for the weekend.

You can definitely feel the humidity just stepping out the door! Warm and muggy conditions will persist through the rest of the day with a slight chance of a few showers and thunderstorms by later this afternoon and evening. A cold front diving in from the northwest will bring more clouds later tonight and additional chances for a few t'showers. The front will gradually slide through early tomorrow. A few clouds will stick around for the first half of Friday, with a passing shower not out of the question. Drier air will filter in the through the late afternoon with high temperatures reaching the middle 80s.  Check out the lower dewpoints that slide in by Saturday morning.

High pressure will be our dominant weather feature this weekend overhead and will keep us under mostly sunny skies with comfortable humidity. High temperatures both days will reach the middle 80s.
