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 20-30%. 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.

Tonight: Mainly quiet with passing clouds. Low near 76.

Wednesday: Another plume of Saharan Dust will arrive late Tuesday/Wednesday and stay until Thursday. This plume will not be as thick as the previous.

Overnight low near 75.
