PM Update: Low-humidity warmth presses on

By Ian Livingston

Fantastic Friday before muggy weekend

The sun returned today and brought summerlike conditions with it. Warm west and northwest winds coming off the mountains have gusted to around 20 or 30 mph, but on a day like this it's no real issue, except perhaps if trying to keep your hair from being messy. Highs have climbed into the upper 80s most spots, with a few places threatening to touch 90 before peak heating winds down. Humidity is thankfully bearable though, for now at least.

Through Tonight: An excellent evening is nearly upon us, temperatures will fall back into the low 80s around sunset and through the 70s thereafter. Last night, clouds stuck around longer than expected keeping us a bit milder than anticipated. Tonight should be rather clear and that will help temperatures dip to near 60 in the suburbs to the mid-60s downtown.

Tomorrow (Friday): Another sunshine filled and warm day is up ahead on Friday. We'll start off a little lower in the temperature department and a light north wind should help keep highs a touch below today's. Look for afternoon readings mainly in the mid-80s. Winds may shift to come from the south late in the day as a high pressure moves offshore and sets us up for a muggy weekend.

Everyone adjusting okay to today's heat? I certainly miss our previous cool airmass!

We'll miss those cool temps even more over the weekend.
This evening ain't so bad. There's a nice breeze going.

I know it's not Washington weather but a young lady could be in dire straits in the southern Indian Ocean. Anyone know of any good weather sites to follow for that area?

Low temperatures are about 10 degrees higher than predicted.
