Morning fog will burn off through the late morning and early afternoon, leading to partly cloudy skies. Light Southeasterly winds will help usher in slightly warmer air than Thursday, with highs peaking in the upper 80′s to near 90. With the humidity, feel like temps will rise to the low to mid 90′s.

On Saturday, warm air advection will continue which means temperatures will climb higher, into the low to mid 90′s. Combined with very high dew points, feel like temps will approach and exceed 100 degrees. That is why a heat advisory has been issued from 11AM to 8PM Saturday for much of the Tri-States. Sunday will be slightly less humid, but still quite warm with highs in the low 90′s.

Some relief is on the way next week, as a cold front brings slightly lower temperatures and the next chance for storms Sunday into Monday.
