The warming trend kicks into high gear late this week and weekend. Lows will be in the 70s for all of us most likely and highs will push into the upper 70s.
Humidity will be high too, making it feel more like the mid-90s. The pool and beach will be calling your name while rip currents should NOT be an issue.
