The theme these past few weekends has been about humidity, clouds and occasional rain. While this weekend will have less precipitation that the past few, the clouds will persist. Temperatures will still hover around 80 degrees which is very comfortable. So, head out on the road and enjoy the many happenings across the SouthCoast and beyond.
