6:22 pm
changer, the last front that came through yesterday that produced the strong storms in the afternoon and evening, chase out the humidity and friday really looking nice again, maybe a little bit of a breeze like we had today but from that dry direction and i mentioned a spotty shower only tomorrow. it's because there's a system up through pennsylvania that might just kind of swing along the mason-dixon line with an isolated shower north. that would be it. otherwise, it's mostly sunny. it's warm. it's dry. temperatures right back into the low 80's. let's talk about what's ahead for the weekend because right now we think saturday's going to be now main a dry day at 81 degrees. it will be warm. if we had anything at all it would be very isolated. a little different story on sunday but even sunday's forecast the timing is holding this off a little bit later. we'll have a warm front moving through and after it comes on through, we could see some later in the day storms will be a bit more unstable and maybe a couple of showers. here's how the thing -- how everything is setting up for the weekend. comfortable on saturday afternoon but with this warm front on the move o
6:23 pm
bringing the warm more unstable air in later in the day, that's why we have to increase that chance for showers and storms. and they may hang around on monday. if you're headed to the beaches this weekend, i know memorial day wasn't the best weekend there. it's not the best weekend we've ever had but it's a little better than last weekend, 74 with a mix of clouds and sun on saturday. maybe a late thunderstorm at the beaches on sunday with a temperature of 73. here we go. fox5 accuweather 7-day june coming in on a nice note. couple of dry days ahead. late day storms sunday and also in the afternoon on monday. and right now we think we can dry it out a little bit more on wednesday and thursday of next week. more so than it looked last -- yesterday it looked like it might be unsettled for the first half of the week so that's not a bad forecast. >> not a bad start to june at all. >> yes, we like june. >> thank you, sue. >> ♪ >> ♪♪
