It will be warm and muggy for the Bengals and Eagles at Paul Brown Stadium tonight temperatures in the low 80's. Then clear tonight with temperatures back in the low 90's on Saturday, we still have a risk of pop-up thunderstorms late on Saturday between 3pm and 8pm. Then a better shot on Sunday for showers and storms. That will bring in some less humid air as we work into next week. FOX19 Meteorologist Frank Marzullo
