Today: We’re in a typical summer weather pattern for the next few days. It’s going to be hot, very muggy and we’ll see spotty thunderstorms. Rain chance is around 30%. Any storm that develops will have the potential to produce gusty wind, frequent lightning, and heavy rain. High temperatures will be in the low to mid 90s, but it will feel like the 100s.
