Coastal flooding will be a possibility during morning high tide through Saturday, the National Weather Service reports. Other than that, sunny conditions will give way to the chance for clouds and rain as the weekend progresses.
The chance for showers will first pop up Saturday night, and chances will increase until Monday night, when there will be a 70 percent possibility. That will drop to 50 percent on Tuesday, and then clear skies are expected to return.
Highs will be in the low 80s through Monday before slightly dipping on Tuesday. Things should get much cooler on Wednesday and Thursday, with anticipated highs of 71 and 68 respectively.
Humidity will reach 100 percent on Sunday morning and Monday night, and should otherwise reach late evening and early morning highs in the 90s, save for Wednesday, when it will peak at 75 percent. Mid afternoon lows will be erratic throughout the week, reaching as low as 38 percent on Wednesday and as high as 72 percent on Wednesday.
