(KFVS) -

We are enjoying lots of sunshine today across the area as well as warm temperatures.

Grant Dade says the amount of moisture in the air is low so the temperatures feel fairly comfortable. This will change as we head towards the end of the week but for now, enjoy the pleasant weather.

Temperatures this evening will slowly fall into the 70s. Lows by morning will be in the lower 60s for most areas with a few upper 50s along the I-64 corridor.

Wednesday will be sunny and warm. Highs will reach the upper 80s to near 90 degrees.

Dew points will continue to increase too, so humidity will be a bit more noticeable the next few days.  Most areas will remain dry until the weekend. 

It looks hot and humid Saturday and Sunday, with scattered showers and thunderstorms.
