With temperatures threatening triple digits, this family took to the “swimmin’ hole” along Campus Drive for some relief from the heat.

The weekend may bring a chance of rain and slightly cooler temperatures, though don’t expect the humidity to go away anytime soon.

According to Craig Evanego, meteorologist for the National Weather Service, it “doesn’t look like it’s going to be a washout,” though there’s a chance of thunderstorms each day over the weekend, particularly today.

“Looks like Saturday, there will be more clouds than sun and a good chance of thunderstorms by the afternoon — We’re looking at 80%,” he explained.

Temperatures are expected to be in the high 70s throughout the weekend, which is slightly cooler in contrast to the temperatures in the high 80s this past week.

Though temperatures may be down a few degrees, Evanego said the area will not get a break from the humidity just yet.

Showers should diminish by tonight, with a low in the upper 50s. Sunday will have a high back in the upper 70s with a 50% chance of showers and a gusty west wind developing.
