Tonight, temperatures will gradually drop back into the 70's with partly cloudy skies. 

Up Next: We will conclude the workweek on Thursday and Friday with the same conditions that have been around all week; very warm, muggy and dry. Over the weekend, temperatures will warm one or two more degrees each afternoon, sending highs closer to the mid-90's, with an uptick in humidity as well. Nights remain muggy through the next 7-days with temperatures each morning in the 70's. Temperatures and humidity are expected to peak on Memorial Day ahead of a weak front that will bring our next, yet very slight, opportunity for rain.
