We'll continue to see gradual clearing as temperatures warm to the upper 70s to low 80s. Temperatures rise to 81 which is very close to "normal" for mid September.

Temperatures are still expected to rise into the mid 80s for Friday and the weekend ahead. While humidity levels aren't oppressive in this stretch, it will be noticeable enough to make it feel sticky outside. Saturday we even see a heat index of 88. But with so many outdoor events going on, the main question is: Will it rain?

Friday night football should be dry with kickoff temperatures in the upper 70s and a partly cloudy sky.

Saturday is a mostly dry day as well with a partly cloudy sky. But in the heat of the afternoon, a brief pop up shower cannot be ruled out. Highs will be around 85. Sunday has a lower rain chance with a mostly sunny sky but it's still going to be sticky outside.

The other common inquiry I'm getting is about the heat and when it ends. It looks like a frontal system next week Tuesday night will bring in some slightly cooler air. This should give us seasonal highs in the upper 70s for the end of the week with cooler nights as well.
