CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - After a stormy, hot and muggy week, our weather finally turns cooler and drier for the weekend ahead!

Temperatures will be below average this weekend. It’ll be breezy on Saturday as northwest winds bring in much drier air. You can give your A/C a break.

High sunburn index this weekend. That will be the only weather hazard.

The break in the heat and humidity will not last long. Heat wave conditions return next week. Just in time for official summer. The summer solstice is Tuesday.

Some scattered showers and thunderstorms will form in the heat and humidity especially next Wednesday and Thursday.
