Saturday: Sunny, and not quite as hot. A little less humid PM. High 87-88 (Beaches 82). Wind: NE 5-12 mph (Winds NE 7-14 mph Beaches PM).

Saturday Night: Partly cloudy to clear, and humid. Low 68 inland to 73 coast. Wind: NE 0-4 mph.

Sunday: Mainly sunny, warm and humid. High 85-88 (Beaches 81). Wind: E 3-11 mph (Winds E 8-12 mph Beaches PM).

FORECAST DISCUSSION: Temperatures and humidity’s will drop some Saturday, and an onshore breeze will make the beaches much more comfortable. Inland highs will reach the mid to upper 80’s but it will stay between 79-82 on the beaches. Sunday will be much the same with an easterly wind flow keeping the beaches pleasant and it will be warm inland with highs in the mid 80’s. Our normal highs inland would be around 84 degrees, so this is a bit above average.

Monday will still be warm, but a weak onshore flow will again hold temps to the upper 80’s inland and the mid 80’s near the beaches. Above normal temps. will continue though Wednesday with highs in the upper 80’s and humid weather. Cooler and much drier air will arrive on Thursday, and bring a real fall feel to the air for as we approach the weekend. The tropics are still a concern, and we could see some tropical development near Florida over the weekend.
