The weather will be smooth sailing now for the next several days with high pressure generally in control. Into the start of the weekend, temperatures will be cooler than average, along with very low humidity for summer. High pressure will slide from Canada down over the state through Saturday. Today will bring a mix of sunshine and clouds with highs in the low to mid 70s, while Saturday looks mostly sunny with highs in the mid to upper 70s (several degrees below normal for the first few days of July). The high center will then shift to our east and winds will begin to shift more to the south. Temperatures will begin to warm more going into Sunday and the Fourth of July. The weather will remain dry along with plenty of sunshine. This is great news for any outdoor events and family gatherings through this long, holiday weekend. Temperatures will warm to the lower 80s on Sunday and we'll add a few more degrees for the holiday. The nights also will be dry and mainly clear, which is also great news for the various firework displays in the area all weekend long.

The jet stream will begin to flatten out and even lift a bit to the north by early next week, and this is when it will feel very summer-like again. The heat should continue to build, with highs well into the 80s next Tuesday and beyond, along with more uncomfortable levels of humidity gradually returning. Rain chances will then start to return by the middle of next week as the next weather system starts to develop and work into the area but it's still several days away.

Have a happy and safe Independence Day weekend!
