Weather: Great End To The Week
By Geoff Bansen
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Much like Thursday, Friday will be another great day. Bright sunshine and lower humidity will make for a pleasant end to the work week, with highs in the mid 80s.
Philly — 85
Shore — 80
Poconos — 75
The weekend in one word? ‘Okay’. We’re not expecting any precipitation, but there will be lots of clouds around, as a disturbance lurks to out south. However, there will likely also be a peeks of sun, more so on Sunday.
We have only seen 0.05″ of rain on weekends since the start of June, a stat likely to remain unchanged.
Looking ahead to next week, the heat and humidity returns, with a shot of showers and thunderstorms by midweek.
Have a great weekend!
