    High temperatures close to 80°, with the dewpoint well into the 60s. Wind is light and variable, but stronger near any thunderstorms.

    The front responsible for our humid weather pushes offshore tonight with partial clearing overnight, low temperature in the 60s east, 50s west.

    High pressure from Canada brings in much lower humidity, with a return to sunshine for our Thursday, high temperatures in the 80s, but much more comfortable air.

    Wind from the west early, becoming light variable with local seabreezes.

    Humidity builds again Friday with fronts approaching from the west and from the south, resulting in afternoon showers and thunderstorms.

    Once again any thunderstorms can come with gusty wind and heavy rain. High temperatures near 80°.

    The weekend looks nice with lower humidity, as another high-pressure system from Canada moves in with partly to mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in the 70s north to low 80s south, and comfortable humidity.

    It looks like we will stay on the dry and comfortable side of the front with plenty of sunshine right through 4th of July. Highs each day in the 80s, low in the 50s with mostly clear and comfortable fireworks and sleeping weather.
