    Get ready to sweat. 

    After a brief break Thursday from the oppressive humidity that has gripped the tri-state most of the summer, mugginess and extreme heat are back just in time for the weekend. 

    Tomorrow will feature the worst combination of heat and humidity. High temperatures are expected to peak in the upper 90's Saturday afternoon, and the oppressive humidity will make it feel like 100-105 degrees during the hottest part of the day. 

    Scattered storms will provide only temporary relief from the sizzling heat, so bring the umbrella along anyway for some shade.

    Real relief in the form of a cold front will arrive during the day Sunday, bringing a chance for some showers and storms. By Monday, a drier push of air will make it much more comfortable with temperatures returning to the 80's, with lower humidity.
