WEATHER BLOG: Summer-Like Friday
Unlike the past two days, which have brought us unlimited sunshine, there will be a few high and mid-level clouds around Friday.
Most temperatures Friday afternoon will be in the low 80s and, even though dew point temperatures will begin a slow ascent, most will still be no higher than the mid 50s Friday afternoon. So, while it’ll technically be more humid than it has been the past few days, not many of us will notice a significant change.
Friday night, we’re going to be keeping an eye on satellite imagery closely. The influx of moisture should cause some low clouds and patchy fog to develop, especially near the immediate coastline.
Well inland, there will also be some clouds gathering, because of the leading edge of even more humid air pressing northward along the spine of the Appalachian. Temperatures Friday night will be no lower than the mid and upper 50s in those typically cooler outlying areas, and the lower 60s in most of the big cities. Obviously, this will be rather mild when comparing it to the past three or four nights.
Saturday, we should still see some sun early, especially near the coastal plain. However, clouds will become more widespread as the afternoon hours unfold. It’ll still be warm and rather humid, and most temperatures will return to the upper 70s.
