Thursday Morning: Hot and humid; daily rain chance

Weather

It is starting to feel like summer again.

Today: We’re in for another hot day with temperatures in the lower 90s. Heat indices will reach the 100s. Most of the day will be dry, but there is the chance for isolated storms this afternoon. Winds will be southwesterly at 5-10 mph. High near 91.

Tonight: We’ll stay nice and dry overnight, but it will be muggy. Temperatures will be close to average with lows in the mid 70s. Winds will be southwesterly at 5-10 mph. Low near 76.

Extended: Tomorrow will be the best chance for any outdoor activities as it will be the driest of the upcoming days. There is a very slight chance for an afternoon shower, but the day will mainly be dry and hot. Temperatures will rise into the lower 90s with triple-digit heat indices. A front will approach the area on Saturday, and that will increase our rain chances. We’re looking at scattered showers throughout the day on Saturday and again on Sunday. Monday will be mainly dry, but there is a low chance for an isolated shower. Tuesday and Wednesday will also be mostly dry, but isolated afternoon storms cannot be ruled out. Overall, temperatures will be slightly below average, but it will still be very muggy.
