CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The warmth and preview of Summer will continue and take us through the weekend. A big ridge in the jet stream and high pressure over the East will keep us our temperatures well above average for May. More 80s and sunshine Friday. This weekend, at or just above 90 for most locations. While very warm to hot, the humidity will remain fairly low. Overall, a largely dry weather stretch looks to continue.
