PLEASANT WEATHER CONTINUES!

WARMER AND MORE HUMID BY THE WEEKEND

A FEW AFTERNOON SHOWERS POSSIBLE THIS WEEKEND

Today: Partly sunny. A little more humid. Stray mountain shower. Highs 79-86. Southeast wind 10 mph or less.

Tonight: Clear to partly cloudy. Lows 56-63. Light wind.

Saturday: Partly cloudy. A stray shower is possible. Highs 80-86. Light south wind.

Weather Summary:

Another nice start this morning. Some may want a light jacket heading out the door. It will be nice and warm this afternoon with highs in the 80s. Humidity levels will slowly increase today into Saturday, but won't be oppressive this afternoon. With winds coming in from the east, a few mountain showers are possible near the Blue Ridge today and Saturday.

High humidity levels are expected Sunday along with a good chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. By the early to middle part of next week, rain chances go back down and temperatures will be near or above average.

Meanwhile, we are tracking Tropical Storm Erika. Right now, Erika is a low-end tropical storm and is moving through an atmosphere that will limit strengthening as it nears Puerto Rico. There's still a large amount of uncertainty beyond that point, as to where this storm moves and just how strong it becomes. Be sure to check back for updates, especially if you have vacation plans or family who live along the Florida or Southeast coasts of the US.

Highs will be in the upper 70s to mid 80s through Wednesday. Lows in the 60s this weekend and next week.

Our average high is 84°, low 61°.
