Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 8:27 p.m. Aug. 28, 2015

The weekend will bring a return to more typical August weather with an increase in heat and humidity.

High pressure, the source of the pleasant weather, is sitting over the Mid-Atlantic States tonight. This will supply us with tranquil conditions through the night with only a few clouds and comfortable lows in the 60s. As the high pressure cell gradually shifts eastward, our winds will become southerly, inviting warmer and a bit more humid air into the listening area tomorrow. With a good deal of sunshine, temperatures will climb to near 90 in many communities tomorrow afternoon. Sunday will bring similar conditions with a continued uptick in humidity. While most of the weekend looks rain-free, it’s possible there is a late-day thunderstorm west of Interstate 81 Sunday. The heat and humidity will persist into the start of the new work week, too, with temperatures sizzling into the lower 90s on Monday and the middle 90s Tuesday. The only relief would come in the form of a few cooling thunderstorms but these would be widely-separated and not every community would get wet.

The weather at the Delmarva Beaches looks great this weekend with sunshine and temperatures in the 80s, so don’t forget the shades and sunscreen!
