Temperatures edged a little higher Tuesday afternoon, warming into the mid to upper 80s. But, this is a far cry from the heat and humidity of last week. And, the days ahead will feature a little bit of a cool down as we wrap up the month.

For tonight, we can expect starry skies and bright moonshine. Temperatures will drop into the low to mid-60s by morning.

Wednesday will get off to a sunny start with some fair weather cumulus clouds bubbling up in the afternoon as temperatures climb into the low to mid-80s.

Even drier air will work into the area Wednesday night opening the door to even cooler mornings Thursday and Friday. Lows in the 50s can be expected across the area with comfortable afternoon highs in the low to mid-80s.

The summer ridge will settle in heading into the weekend. This will keep the pattern bone dry and bright. Temperatures will climb too with highs back in the low 90s. Humidity levels will remain low though and that will keep morning temperatures comfortable.

Humidity levels will tick up a little bit by Monday and this may open the door to an isolated afternoon shower or two. But, most areas will remain dry with hot and humid conditions. Back to work weather also looks hot and humid. Rain chances may head a little higher too.
