Rain chances decrease today but rise for the weekend

Expect a much drier, hot, and humid day across the region. 

High temps will cash in at around 94 degrees on Thursday in many inland areas. Factor in the humidity and we're talking about a feels like temp near 100 degrees today for the p.m. hours.

Coastal locations will remain "cooler" and in the upper 80s as the Atlantic sea breeze develops before 12 p.m. Beach weather today looks great and quite frankly, could be the place to be.

High pressure over the eastern seaboard will help change the wind direction all across Florida starting Thursday.

Winds will increase just slightly from the east, helping to draw in a very dry airmass for this time of year. While the rain chances ease briefly, keep in mind that the humidity levels will remain high.
