Mother Nature is reminding us that it is still summer.

We'll have plenty of heat and humidity over the next couple of days, along with a few storms. Expect high temperatures on Thursday back into the low-to-mid 90s with a slight chance for a cooling shower or storm as a cold front begins to push in.

Behind that cold front you'll notice slightly lower humidity and temperatures on Friday. Expect highs in the mid to upper 80s.

The milder weather really takes hold for the long holiday weekend. We will enjoy highs in the lower 80s with just a slight risk for a thunderstorm.
