Today should be sunny and hot, but humidity levels will continue to fall. Is cooler air on the way?

This Afternoon: Mostly Sunny, Hot

Highs: Mid 90s | Wind: NW 6-12 m.p.h.

Overnight: Mostly Clear, Warm

Lows: 70s | Wind: SW 5 m.p.h.

Wednesday: Mostly Cloudy, Showers & Storms Possible

Highs: Near 90 | Wind: SW 5-10 m.p.h.

High pressure will make for a pleasant day with sunny skies but continued hot temperatures in the low to mid 90s. Northwesterly winds around 6 to 12 m.p.h. will help usher in some drier air this afternoon. Tonight, lows should fall into the 70s under mostly clear skies.

An area of low pressure will move into the region tomorrow making for mostly cloudy skies and the chance for a few showers and thunderstorms. With ample shear in the atmosphere tomorrow, there is the potential for a few thunderstorms with some of them becoming strong to severe. Highs should reach near the 90 degree mark.

Thursday may feature some morning fog or clouds before clearing in the afternoon hours with cooler temperatures possibly not reaching the 90 degree mark. We are expecting highs in the 80s, which would be the first time highs haven't reached 90 degrees in 17 days.
