    A dry and warm night is on tap across the region tonight as high pressure settles to our southeast and southwest flow continues to bring summer-like warmth north. Lows reach into the mid 60s south and low 60s north, running about 10 to 15 degrees above normal for this time of year.

    Some highest low temperature records may be challenged. Hazy, hot and humid tomorrow with heat and humidity similar to the middle of summer in place.
