FORECAST IN DETAIL
It seems like we've waited the whole summer for a weekend like this. At last, we'll put together two days without rain, extreme heat, or oppressive humidity. So we can all go about our weekend activities free of weather worries like heat stroke or thunderstorm induced power outages. While this break from the heat is well-timed, that's all it is - a break. Next week we steam right back up.
Today (Saturday): The early morning will be the most pleasant time of the day with 60s in most spots. Loads of sunshine push temperatures quickly through the 70s in the mid-to-late morning. During the afternoon, we climb well into the 80s. Although many spots max out in the toasty upper 80s, the humidity is relatively low so it will feel nice. There will be little in the way of wind. Confidence: High
Tonight: We're looking at a second straight fine summer evening with clear skies. Temps gradually slip through 80s by 8 pm or so and through the 70s and into the 60s to around 70 (downtown) by early morning. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Sunday): Winds come around from out of the south at around 10 mph, so we notice an increase in humidity compared to Saturday. But it doesn't exceed the moderate range which will make highs in the upper 80s to near 90 reasonably tolerable. Skies will be mostly sunny with minimal rain chances. Confidence: Medium-High
Tomorrow Night: We'll sense the mugginess returning as southerly flow further establishes itself. Lows will range from the upper 60s in the cooler suburbs to the mid-70s downtown. Confidence: Medium-High
Heat re-loads Monday and Tuesday with highs the in low-to-mid 90s on Monday and mid-90s on Tuesday under partly to mostly sunny skies. Humidity both days will be moderate to high. Overnight lows will be in the 70s. Confidence: Medium
