(KSLA) - The heat is slowly coming back as the days pass. Temperatures will be up to around the 90 degree mark by this weekend. The good news is that the humidity will not be too high.

Overnight will be nice and dry with mostly clear skies. The humidity will still be somewhat low, therefore temperatures will be cooling down to the lower to mid 60s. Some areas will fall all the way to the upper 50s! It should be a good night to open the windows and give the AC a break.

Wednesday looks dry for most of the area, but a few showers may move through portions of southwest Arkansas by afternoon as an upper level low pressure system spins just to our northeast. We’ll be partly cloudy with afternoon highs mainly in the mid 90s.

Dry weather returns for everyone Thursday. We’ll start heating up a little more with fewer clouds and ample sunshine. Highs will warm into the mid to upper 80s.

Friday and on into the weekend will still have gorgeous weather! The only thing is that temperatures these days will be in the upper 80 and lower 90s. So, it will not exactly feel like Fall. However, the humidity will be tolerable so it will not feel too bad. You’ll still need those sunglass as you head out the door for any outdoor plans. I expect a lot of sunshine and limited cloud cover.

Next week continues to look mostly dry. There will be a little more cloud cover, but still low rain chances. I have a 20% chance on Monday and a 10% chance on Tuesday. So, you should remain dry, but a quick shower cannot be ruled out. Temperatures will heat up to the mid to upper 80s. Just above normal for October.

Out in the tropics, There is one area off the East Coast that has a low chance to develop, but this will likely not become anything. There is only a 10% chance this becomes a named system. The next name off the list will be Wanda before we would have to use the Supplement list. We’ll be your First Alert whenever we get the next storm.

Have a terrific Tuesday! Enjoy the sunshine this week!
