The ridge of high pressure bringing drier air across Florida and the Gulf of Mexico will hold through the weekend, allowing for hot and dry conditions with low chances of rain, according to the National Weather Service.
A dry Friday morning will see temperatures rise quickly from the 70s into the 80s by lunch, peaking in the low to mid 90s.
A southeasterly flow of wind could pull in some moisture from the south and east and there is a chance of coastal showers, but those chances will hover around 30 percent all day. Some isolated showers and thunderstorms could form as we head into the afternoon and evening, but will quickly die down.
Cloudy skies overnight will lead to an even clearer Saturday as that dry air holds, dropping rain chances to 20 percent with a slight increase to 30 percent on Sunday. Temperatures should also be consistent with humid, overnight lows in the upper 70s and highs in the mid to low 90s all weekend.
It should be a great weekend for the beach, Red Tide not withstanding.
