First Warning Forecast: Tracking comfortable temperatures
Partly cloudy skies to end the work week. Highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. There is a slight chance for a shower this afternoon, keeping a 20 percent chance in there. High pressure will build in tonight making for a great weekend on tap. Lows tonight in the mid and upper 60s.
Temperatures will be in the upper 70s to low 80s for both Saturday and Sunday. Expect mostly dry conditions under partly cloudy skies. Keeping a 20 percent chance for an isolated shower during the day on Saturday as a disturbance moves over the area. But for the most part, most folks will stay dry. Not looking at anything widespread.
Next week is looking uncertain. It will all depend on what an area of low pressure off the Florida coast does. Chance of showers for Tuesday and Wednesday. As of now, looks like the remnants of Harvey should stay to the west of us.

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Lows in the upper 60s. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.
