A high pressure system will deliver less humid weather today, as temperatures remain seasonable in the mid-80s. Skies will be mostly clear, with sun shining statewide, according to the National Weather Service.

“Today and tomorrow should be spectacular days,” said weather service meteorologist Charlie Foley. “Late Thursday afternoon and evening we begin to see an increasing chance of precipitation and clouds.”

The stickiness that afflicted much of the state Tuesday will subside for a while, with dewpoints in the low to mid-50s expected to begin today and last into the weekend. Tonight skies will remain clear and temperatures will drop into the 50s.

Conditions will remain unsettled Friday, with showers and thunderstorms possible. Some regions will stay dry Friday, though clouds will blanket much of the state. Temperatures will remain in the low 80s, Foley said.
