It is going to be a great Friday with sunshine and highs in the lwr-mid 80's along with light SW winds. Humidity will increase later in the day as a few clouds will increase ahead of a warm front. It will be a classic beach day in the sunshine with a seabreeze in the afternoon keeping temps in the lwr 80's at the beach. A warm front will push in Friday night with a few clouds and the risk for an isolated shower. This will mark the leading edge of more humid air which will settle in for Saturday.
The weekend is looking mighty fine for mid-August standards. Some sun early Saturday will give way to partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid-80's. A warm muggy day can be expected with the risk for a few scattered showers or a thunderstorm thanks to a cold front which will push into region and provide the necessary lift to trigger a brief shower or downpour. Most of the day will be dry Saturday, but the best chance of a brief shower will be from the midday into the afternoon. Once the front pulls off the coast, full sunshine will return on Sunday with a warmer airmass to kick of the week. Highs will be near 90 on Sunday. Just an incredible summer day all around. Have your sun protection ready with hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and water if you plan to be outside all day.
The peak of the heat will come Monday as highs will be in the Lwr-mid 90's with sunny to partly sunny skies. A cold front will push through Tuesday with a few scattered showers and storms, with the potential for a few downpours. Highs will still be near 90 on Tuesday, depending on the speed of the front. If it speeds up just a bit more, 80's may be more like it and this would prevent the official heatwave of 3 consecutive days of 90+ weather. Drier, less humid, cooler more comfortable air will return for the mid week with sun and clouds and highs in the 70's and Lwr 80's.
