After a mini break yesterday, there is more heat and humidity. High temperatures will return to the lower 90s, and with the rising humidity it will feel more like the mid to upper 90s at times this weekend. A big sprawling ridge of high pressure is taking over the weather story. This will keep us mostly dry. A weak system on Saturday will through a little wrench in those plans. Unlike the previous fronts, these system looks to hold itself together as it pushes through the Ohio Valley. It won't carry a lot of rain. Only an isolated storm or two will be possible Saturday afternoon.

We will quickly dry out again Sunday, and heat up even more. High temperatures will stay parked in the lower 90s and storm chances will remain relatively low into the first half of next week. The big, sprawling Bermuda high will eventually break down leading to a more unsettled stretch through the end of the week. Scattered storms will cool us down a touch.
