As we head into the weekend, the cold front will move off shore and allow for cooler and drier weather to return for the weekend. Temperatures on both Saturday and Sunday will climb into the middle to upper 70s on the beaches with abundant sunshine and low humidity. Inland, we’ll see the lower 80s return on Sunday but still remain comfortable. As we look ahead to next week, there’s an increasing chance of some much needed rainfall by the middle and end of the week with two separate cold fronts.
