The summer solstice is today at 1:16pm, the longest day of the year (actually we have several) each at 14 hours and 56 minutes.

Today: AM Sprinkles to Sun, Very Warm & Humid, Stray PM Storm

Highs: Near 90 | Wind: South 5-10

Overnight: Scattered Clouds, Muggy

Lows: 67-73 | Wind: South 5-10

Tomorrow: Hot & Humid, Risk Strong PM Storms

Highs: 90-95 | Wind: South 5-10

A warm front is lifting through the area this morning and triggered off some showers and thunderstorms. In the wake of the warm front will come a southwest flow of hot and muggy weather. Expect sun to bust through later this morning as highs will approach 90 degrees. Very appropriate for the summer solstice and the kick-off to Astronomical Summer (arriving at 1:16 p.m.) The only relief will be the chance of a highly isolated t-storm, mainly west of the city.

The hot and sticky weather will continue through the work week with the chance of daily (mainly p.m.) thunderstorms. A cold front will approach late Friday into Saturday, bringing a gradual cool-down by the second half of the weekend. In the meantime, take it easy: slow down, drink plenty of water, dress in light, loose clothing, avoid strenuous exercise outdoors, and check on the pets and elderly to make sure everyone is staying cool. Have a great day!
