Enjoy this perfect summer forecast

No humidy

When it comes to summer weather it doesn’t get better than this. Sunny skies, low humidity and temperatures dancing in the 80s.

And this sweet weather will stay around for a few days as a high pressures system settles down for a spell.

As with most summer days, there’s a slight chance of showers but really nothing to worry about.

Evenings will also be comfortable with temperatures in the cool 60s. So keep the windows open; no need to turn on the AC.

Here’s the delightful forecast:
