Much of the same is expected for Saturday, although conditions look to be warmer than Friday. The upper level ridge will continue to move eastward, with the center passing over the region during the mid-afternoon. Winds from the southwest in the low levels and at the surface will continue to bring moisture into the area, raising dew point temperatures to the low 70’s. Heat index values will exceed 90F and are more likely to approach the mid 90’s. With more moisture present, expect partly cloudy conditions to dominate the day.
On Sunday, winds in the upper levels will shift to the south as the high pressure ridge moves over the Atlantic, which will result in most of the cloud cover for the day being concentrated in the mid to upper levels. Otherwise, conditions will be much similar to Saturday, with temperatures in the upper 80’s and heat index values in the mid 90’s.
