Friday we climb to within a degree or two of 90 degrees and stay there for the weekend.

 Just a slight chance for a shower on Saturday. Hot August weather continues next week with highs well into the 80s or lower 90s. With only a few chances for downpours, this may quickly become a long dry stretch of summer weather.
