BALTIMORE -- It's the weekend we've been waiting for. After severe storms and a brutal heatwave, we are finally experiencing an enjoyable stretch of days.   

It will be mostly sunny Friday with a high near 83 degrees. If you head out before 7 this morning you might see some isolated showers. 

The drier and cooler air means dew points and humidity levels remain low, so there is no noticeable heat index (80s will feel like 80s). 

Tonight will be clear with a low around 62. 

We keep this pattern through the weekend before our next rainmaker approaches late Sunday night into Monday.   

Saturday and Sunday will be more of the same with a high near 83. 


Our First Alert Weather team is tracking the chance for showers and storms come Monday. 

We'll keep you posted, but don't overthink it! This is a fantastic forecast.

The water temp at the beach may at times be higher than the air temp.


If you're heading east to the beach this weekend, the Maryland Department of Transportation reminds drivers of the best times to cross the Bay Bridge to avoid traffic.
