More heat, humidity, and rain chances… We will see a mix of clouds through midday with mostly cloudy skies and a few isolated showers. Scattered showers and storms will fire up early this afternoon. Severe weather is not likely but heavy downpours could trigger localized flooding. Highs will reach 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.

Expect mostly cloudy skies tonight with scattered showers and storms possible. Temperatures will return to the low and mid 70s overnight and it will still be muggy.

Highs will warm to near 90 by Friday. 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.
