FRIDAY: Sunshine will continue to be the rule of the day amid a northerly breeze flowing in from high pressure being anchored to the north of the area. Highs will top out in the middle to upper 80s. Occasional gusts of wind may clock 20-25 mph, offering a cool burst of relief from the warm late Spring sunshine. We’ll stay clear overnight as lows drop into the lower to middle 60s.

WEEKEND PLANNER: High pressure will continue to hold firm over the region through the latter half of the week with tolerable humidity levels for mid-June standards. Expect mainly sunny skies with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s into the weekend. It will pretty much be the perfect weekend for outdoor activities.

EXTENDED FORECAST: A weak front will slip in, allowing for temperatures to ease back a few degrees by late Monday into Tuesday. We’ll still manage highs in the middle and upper 80s Tuesday. A ridge of high pressure will move eastward through the week, ushering in warmer temperatures – getting into the lower and middle 90s by week’s end.
