A change in the wind direction to the east for the weekend brings in some drier air. Although the scattered rain chance has diminished, the heat will be on with Saturday and Sunday looking at upper 80s and lower 90s. Looking into next week it looks fairly dry with highs closer to normal. Have a great night.
