80s, humidity level on rise as we watch Tropical Storm Erika

Here comes Friday, and we should end this pleasant week on a delightful note. Another dry afternoon and evening is forecast, which means it's looking good for the Panthers preseason game at 7:30.

The weekend will be a little split, with Saturday the better day of the two. There is only a slim chance of a shower with highs in the mid-upper 80s. Humidity is expected to be up by Sunday, which in turn leads to more clouds and higher shower chances.

The rest of our extended forecast beyond the weekend is low confidence at this point and will become more dependent on the path of Tropical Storm Erika. At this time we are featuring a slight rain chance each day with higher humidity and highs in the mid-upper 80s.
