Unusually hot and humid weather will prevail again today before a frontal system arrives late afternoon which will work to remove a little bit of the heat and moisture in the atmosphere with a shift in the wind direction. Temperatures will easily reach the lower 90s but will feel 5-10 degrees warmer in many areas. The approach of a cold front during the afternoon will trigger scattered thunderstorms. Some of these storms could be severe with large hail and damaging winds.
A new area of high pressure will build into the region on Thursday. Don't look for chilly breezes or a feel of fall in the air. Temperatures will fall by a few degrees and relative humidity levels will drop to more reasonable levels. The next chance of rain will arrive on Saturday afternoon.
