Humidity is going to be (relatively) low both days. Check out these dew points!
Littered with 50s and 60s - nice and comfortable (especially for the end of July). Plus it's a big difference from the last few weeks, when dew points of 75+ were not uncommon.

Many of us need the break from the summery weather since we've had a lot of heat, humidity and storms. But many places - Central Iowa in particular - could use some rain.
For now it's calm and comfortable. Open up the windows and enjoy the not so summery weekend in July!
