Wednesday Morning: Heating up, drying out but less humid

Weather

Today: Multiple inches of rain were recorded across the area over the past 2 days from the stalling front. This front has dissolved with a high-pressure system settling in over the next few days. This will leave you Wednesday dry and partly cloudy. Thanks to the front we also have a north wind which is leaving us with drier air. This means lower dewpoints and lower heat index values despite a higher actual temperature. Yay for lower humidity! It makes a difference. Feels like temperatures will remain in the 90s. The high will be around 90 for today. Overnight lows back in the mid-70s with mostly clear skies.  

Thursday: It will be similar to Wednesday. Mostly dry, partly cloudy, more heat but less humid. Highs near 92. 

Friday-Saturday: A disturbance will swing in from the northwest near Arkansas which will bring the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the low-90s with high heat index values thanks to an uptick in the dewpoint temperatures. 

Next Week: A typical summertime pattern is expected with scattered afternoon storms with heat early on and high humidity. Highs in the low-90s.  

Tracking the Tropics: August & September typically see more tropical activity than all of the other months combined. There are currently 2 systems with possible development. One is south of the Cabo Verde Islands with a 20% chance of development in 5 days and is heading due west. This system we will keep an eye on. Another is a little closer but still far out with possible development near northern Lesser Antilles.
