NOWCAST THROUGH EVENING: Fair to partly cloudy. Warm and muggy. 6pm: Mostly Sunny 89° 8pm: Mostly Clear 85° 10pm: Partly Cloudy 80°
SOME STORMS WEDNESDAY: It's feeling more like July again thanks to higher temperatures and humidity levels. The heat stays with us into Wednesday before a cold front dives in from the northwest by evening. This could set off a round of showers and thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon into early Wednesday night. Organized severe weather is not anticipated, but a couple of storms could be quite strong with gusty winds and locally heavy downpours. Highs will top out near 90 with heat indices in the mid to upper 90s.
LATE WEEK COOLDOWN: We'll get a taste of cooler, less humid air Thursday into Friday. Afternoon readings will reach the lower 80s Thursday with mid 80s Friday under mostly sunny skies both days. You'll be able to turn off the A/C's and open up the windows Thursday night, as lows drop into the comfy upper 50s!
ANOTHER WARMUP, THEN ANOTHER COOLDOWN: Readings climb back into the 90s Saturday before our next cold front arrives late in the weekend. We'll stand chances for scattered showers and storms both weekend days with a small chance for rain lingering into Monday. Another shot of unseasonably cool, less humid air arrives early next week.
TONIGHT: Partly Cloudy with Areas of Patchy Fog...Low 71, winds Calm
