Yesterday's high of 71 and a low of 62 made it the coldest July day in exactly four years. Mostly sunny skies and a southerly breeze this afternoon will allow the temperature to bounce back to near 80 degrees today.
The warming will continue tomorrow as a storm system moves eastward out of the Ohio Valley. Thursday's high will be close to the normal of 84 degrees. The humidity will start rising later in the day as the low approaches the coast, and we could be in for some precipitation beginning Thursday night. The best chance of showers or thunderstorms will be during the day on Friday. That could change as the city is toward the northern edge of where rain is likely. A little jog north or south by the storm will greatly lower/raise the likelihood of rain.
High pressure builds southward on Friday night, pushing the rain away and giving us some very pleasant weekend weather. Saturday will start out cloudy but will become mostly sunny by afternoon with a high in the upper 70s. Sunday looks to be sunny and in the low 80s.
