Storms have ended this evening, followed by partial clearing. Though it's still humid, overnight it will become slightly less humid. Areas of fog will develop in some areas. 

Tomorrow will be hot! Tomorrow will likely be the hottest day of the week with temperatures into the middle 90s.  There is a slight chance for a shower midday but most of us will stay dry. 

The weekend is looking nice however we'll have to keep a close eye on an area of rain just off shore. It will likely slide to our south Saturday night into Sunday morning but we may get clipper with a few rain showers. It will also be a bit cooler and less humid with temperatures in the 80s. Both days should feature a mixture of sunshine and clouds.
