Back to the heat and storms… After a nice little break from the heat yesterday, it’s back to the 90s today. Temperatures will start in the 70s this morning and climb into the low 90s this afternoon. It will feel more the mid to upper 90s with higher humidity. Scattered showers and storms will fire up this afternoon and evening.
