Wet & muggy today, clearing for weekend

Make sure you have a poncho as heavy rain will dominate the weather for most of today. An umbrella might not work since winds will also be gusts approaching 40 mph. Some flooding may also be possible in low lying areas, along with ponding of water on most roads. Today’s high humidity and rainfall is the result of low pressure riding northward along the East Coast. Temperatures should not reach 80°F like on previous days, but it will remain muggy until a cold front finally pushes through tonight, ushering in cooler and drier air. In response to the front, the weekend looks perfect with highs in the 60s°F and sunny skies. Good luck staying dry today!
