Sunshine and comfort return Wednesday

The dense fog is burning off rapidly in most spots but the Dense Fog Advisory remains in effect through 9 a.m. Wednesday.

A terrific stretch of pleasant weather for the rest of the work week is in store and the Comfort Index again goes off the charts to wrap up the work week. The fog gives way to brilliant sunshine this morning with skies becoming mostly sunny Wednesday afternoon.

As Canadian high pressure builds into the region we'll actually feel the drier, cooler airmass move in this afternoon with high temps maxing out nearly five degrees below typical/normal - we're talking the upper 70's. It will be a great evening to fire up those grills on the back deck for a Hump Day cookout!


Extended weather forecast

We'll be mainly clear overnight with refreshing lows in the mid and upper 50's.

Thursday and Friday give us another terrific end to a work week. Skies will be mostly sunny each afternoon with highs near 80 degrees. Enjoy the comfort!

The weekend offers great conditions to do what you want/need to do outdoors. It will become more summer-like with heat and humidity building under partly cloudy skies. It will be a wonderful weekend to somehow end up by the pool.

Saturday is the pick of the weekend with skies becoming partly cloudy and highs in the lower 80's.

Sunday will become hazy, warm and humid with highs climbing into the mid 80's.

Many of us we're robbed of weekend fun last weekend with the water crisis and essential worries as well as closed swimming pools so put all that behind you and make some weekend fun - the weather will cooperate!

The threat of some much needed rain returns early next week.
