WHAT’S UP: A toast on tap at the July opening. Friday will be a summer day! Foggy, hot and humid conditions with highs near 90 degrees do not preclude a one-time late evening shower. An air quality alert in effect until 11 p.m. Friday. Those who suffer from respiratory problems or asthma should relax outside today. Everyone should stay hydrated and take frequent breaks when dealing with this heat.
NEXT: Saturday looks mostly cloudy and humid with scattered showers and thunderstorms still possible, although the forecast is better with a good amount of dry weather for the first half of the weekend. However, some storms could be violent with torrential rains, gusty winds and hail. The front is clearing the area on Sunday with a few early clouds giving way to partly sunny skies. And 4th of July Monday looks pretty sunny, warm and dry at the moment.
Storm Watch team meteorologist Jonathan Cubit said Friday would be warm before the choppy weather on Saturday.
