Lows in the 50s, 60s Warmer temps Sunday Drier air in the area

Sunday will be bring a warmer afternoon with high temperatures in the mid 80s. The humidity will still stay reasonable, since a weak cold front will reinforce the drier air. Sunday winds continue out of the north to northwest keeping the dew points from increasing much.

Monday afternoon will heat up more with highs in the upper 80s as winds shift to easterly. The Atlantic side of the state will be cooler, while our side has above-normal temperatures. The humidity will not move up too much.

An area of high pressure will build down the east coast early next week keeping us warm and dry into next weekend. East winds will continue. So afternoon temperatures will continue in the upper 80s to around 90. Wind speeds will kick up a notch in the late afternoons and evenings at least through Thursday. Winds may lighten up some by Friday.
