By Ian Livingston

Another nice evening on tap; warm tomorrow

Warm to hot temperatures (running about 5-10 degrees above average in most places) have dominated today. Thankfully, humidity levels remain tolerable. Temperatures are now topping out in the upper 80s and low 90s across the region. After 5 p.m, expect readings to drop to more pleasant 80s for the remainder of the evening (another good one for outdoor activities).

Tonight: Mostly clear skies will continue overnight allowing temperatures to fall to right around 70 in the city and down into the mid 60s in the suburbs. Winds will be light and are likely to switch to coming from the south overnight.

Tomorrow: Another warm day is on tap for Friday as temperatures rise into the upper 80s and low 90s under mostly sunny skies. A wind from the south will begin drawing in more humidity as clouds tend to increase late in the day. There will be a very slight risk of thundershowers late in the day, though the activity should remain west of the area.
