      Friday was our 3rd straight day without rain, and the sunshine continues to dry the ground and warms us to near 80°, which felt very nice especially with dew points staying just below 60° most of the day. As a result of this dry weather streak, local rivers have crested, ending flooding in most, but not all, areas after receiving over three and a quarter inches of rain in the past week. In fact, the past 7 days have accounted for 82 percent of this month's rainfall which is about an inch above average. In this warm, sunny, and comfortable humidity, it is another great day for Country Fest, and weather going into this weekend looks nice, too, especially Saturday. Highs will climb into the 80s and our humidity will be noticeable but not too bad with dew points in the upper 50s to lower 60s. A few clouds form in the afternoon, but that shouldn't bring any rain. Sunday will be a bit cloudier but still have some sunshine, though a few showers popping up cannot be ruled out. Still it should be a nice day with highs near 80. We stay dry except for those slight chances Sunday until Tuesday, which looks like the best chance to get rain over next week. After that, humidity builds back in. -Stormtracker 18 Weather Meteorologist Matt Schaefer
