On Thursday, we finally say goodbye to humidity! A strong cold front will push through the region during the early part of the day.

Depending on timing we could see one more day near 90°, and the day will likely start humid with perhaps an isolated morning shower. But after the front passes, skies should clear out, and it will start feeling noticeably better in the humidity department by the second half of the day. We'll start a streak of very nice weather.
