Skies becoming partly sunny Friday with highs in the low 80s, 70s at the beaches.

The ocean for now in the lower 70s, although with south winds from today into the upcoming holiday weekend, water temperatures, in spots, may drop a bit.

Partly cloudy and humid tonight with lows from 68 to 74.

Some sunshine and humid again on Saturday with just the chance of an afternoon or evening thunderstorms in the Northwest counties, if anywhere. Highs will be back in the 80s, but cooler near the ocean.

The shore will find tomorrow the best of the three holiday weekend days because although there will be sun and clouds with humidity both Sunday and Monday, there will be an increasing threat statewide Sunday and Monday of a shower or thunderstorm either day, especially Labor Day.

Highs both Sunday and Monday will be well into the 80s, but somewhat cooler both days at the beaches.

We have a couple of tropical disturbances. One is about 700 miles east of the Lesser Antilles and the other is near the Cape Verde Islands.  It might be a sign that finally the Tropics are beginning to heat up in the many days ahead.
