The warmer-than-average pattern will be well entrenched across the area for the rest of the week and through the weekend, as temperatures soar with a building high-pressure system in the upper atmosphere. Plenty of moisture from the Gulf and a south and southeast wind flow will keep humidity levels quite high and will also support fog development in the mornings. Scattered clouds will mix with some sunshine Friday with another chance for a couple of showers. The upper high should be strongest and closest to the region over the weekend, meaning showers will be scarce and temps may reach their warmest levels then. Lows tonight will be mainly in the 60s, and highs tomorrow rise back into the 70s to near 80°. The next dose of seasonably-cool air won’t arrive until sometime later next week.
