A few showers popping up this afternoon with temperatures in the low to mid 80s. We will continue to see a chance for rain and storms through this evening. Severe weather is not likely but heavy downpours could trigger localized flooding once again. We’ll top off in the mid 80s today but it will feel more like the low 90s. It will be muggy again with dew point values in the low 70s.

Tomorrow morning we will be dry with sunshine mixing in but we will see another chance for patchy, dense fog. By the afternoon highs will warm to the 90s. It will feel more like the mid to upper 90s tomorrow afternoon with the high dew point. We will see a nice mix of sun and clouds through most of the day. We will stay dry through the majority of the day until the late evening. We will get scattered showers and storms but severe weather is not likely.
