The weather, currently.

Minor interruptions in a beautiful forecast

After a few overnight showers with muggy conditions and temperatures in the 60s, it's back to sunshine on Wednesday. Temperatures Wednesday afternoon will rebound into the middle '80s as drier air works in from the northwest. Comfortable conditions for sleeping Thursday night set us up for a beautiful day on Thursday with light wind and highs around 80°F. Another front approach is for Friday with an increase in humidity, and the chance for several more showers. Although, I'm not expecting widespread rain. Presently, the weekend looks beautiful with highs near 80°F along with low levels of humidity.
