WEEKEND WEATHER ... Hot and dry

JOHN DUPONT

The work week ends much the way it began: Hot and dry.

Friday's high temperature will reach the mid 90 under mostly sunny skies.

Rain chance is only 20 percent.

The weekend outlook provide more of the same, with only a scant chance of showers.

The dry, hot pattern continues into the first week of July. Independence Day promises to be a sunny scorcher, with highs in the mid-to-upper 90s.

No rain is expected until Friday of next week.
