Dry air entering from the northeast hasn't had a heavy impact on temperatures, but it has limited the moisture availability, which does tend to make a difference on the feel of the air.  Warm late-day temperatures near 90 degrees will begin to drop through the 80s and 70s late tonight, reaching minimum levels in the mid 60s to around 70 by sunrise Friday.  The sky will become mostly clear with bright full moonlight.  Winds will transition to a southeast flow by late tomorrow, dragging some moisture back into the region and setting up the scenario for higher rain chances over the weekend ... but Friday will be primarily dry and partly cloudy with highs near 90.  Weekend rain chances continue to stay elevated, but the surge of tropical moisture may be reduced somewhat, giving us less of a chance of prolonged heavy rain late Saturday through Sunday.
