warm temperatures, dropping afternoon RH values into the 30s. Light
southwest winds will develop on Friday within the return flow of the
departing high pressure. This will result in not only persistent
warm temperatures but rising humidity values, with daytime highs
well into the 80s and min RH values in the 40s. Warm temperatures
with relatively high daytime humidities will persist through the
holiday weekend.
