AccuWeather.com -- After a stretch of quiet, comfortable weather across the Northeast during the middle of the week, heat and humidity will return for the weekend.

After much of the Northeast experienced daytime high temperatures in the 70s to lower 80s Fahrenheit for much of the week, temperatures will rise into the middle to upper 80s F and even lower 90s F over the weekend.

"A ridge of high pressure will slide eastward from the Ohio Valley to just off the mid-Atlantic coast into Saturday," AccuWeather Meteorologist Josh Searles said.

"Winds will shift out of the southwest and usher in a surge of warm and humid air that will last into the start of next week," Searles said.

The region with the best chance of reaching the 90s F over the weekend will be along the Interstate 95 corridor from New York City to Washington, D.C.

Temperatures will reach the 80s F across much of New England, including Boston.

A rise in humidity over the weekend will send AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures into the middle to upper 90s F for much of the region.

"Temperatures and humidity levels will be on the rise out ahead of a cold front, which will also trigger scattered showers and thunderstorms on Friday and Saturday," AccuWeather Meteorologist Becky Elliott said.

Warm, humid air to return to Northeast this weekend
LAKE MEAD NATIONAL RECREATION AREA, NV - AUGUST 03: The ruins of the Hannig Ice Cream Parlor are shown in the ghost town of St. Thomas on August 3, 2015 in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Nevada. The town was founded in 1865 by Mormon pioneers at the site where the Muddy River flowed into the Colorado River and at one point had about 500 settlers. The town was abandoned in 1938 after the construction of the Hoover Dam caused the Colorado River to rise. The area was once submerged in 60 feet of water but became entirely exposed to the air as a severe drought in the Western United States over the last 15 years has caused Lake Mead to drop to historic low levels.
