First Warning Forecast: A very similar day on tap for Sunday

*High risk of rip currents today.

High pressure will be controlling our weather into next week, which means more sunshine and slim rain chances.

Partly to mostly sunny skies on tap today. It will be another gorgeous day for the Neptune Festival and all the other outdoor activities going on. Temperatures will warm to the upper 70s with a few 80s sprinkled in. Humidity will still be low, but that will be changing.

The dry  weather will carry into the start of the work week. Dry Monday with highs around 80 and lows in the mid 60s. Another nice day on Tuesday, but temperatures will start to trend warmer. Highs in the low 80s. We are still looking at dry conditions. Skies will be partly cloudy. The humidity will also start to rise into the 70s, making it feel muggy. Not looking too bad rain-wise through Saturday. Skies will be clear to partly cloudy with highs in the low and mid 80s. We are keeping a 5-20 percent chance for a shower daily, but most areas will remain dry.
