More hot, humid weather with a chance of storms....That summertime feeling is back again! On Thursday, expect high temperatures in the low to mid 90s, but because of the humidity, it will feel like the upper 90s and low 100s. We'll see a mix of sun and clouds and a few isolated showers and storms by afternoon into the evening ahead of a cold front. As the front sweeps through, our rain chances will increase overnight.

We could also see a few storms during the day Friday as the front stalls near the area . Otherwise, expect partly sunny skies on Friday with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Temperatures won't change much at all through the weekend, even with the front offshore. Highs on Saturday and Sunday will be in the upper 80s and lower 90s.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy, Isolated Showers/Storms Early (10-20%). Low temperatures in the low to mid 70s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Sun and Cloud Mix. Chance of PM Showers/Storms (30%). High temperatures in the low to mid 90s. Winds: S 5-15 mph.
