It’s déjà vu in the weather department with a break in the heat on the horizon.

Partly Cloudy, Very Warm & Muggy, 30% Chance Spotty T'Showers
Highs: Around 90º
Wind: SW/W 5-15 mph
Shower or Storm Possible, Then Partly Cloudy, Less Muggy
Lows: 60s
Wind: WNW 4-8 mph
Partly Cloudy, Becoming Less Humid (Stray Storm)
Highs: Mid to Upper 80s
Wind: NW 10-15 mph

More of the same again today with a mix of clouds and sun, warm and muggy highs around 90º and some spotty afternoon and evening thundershowers. Some could be heavy-rainers, but once again, not everyone gets in on the action. A cold front clears the region by Wednesday, which will provide some relief from the heat and drop temperatures into the low to middle 80s. However, what exactly will happen with this aforementioned front is the million-dollar question. Some models depict the front hanging nearby with an area of low pressure developing along it, thus bringing some rain into the mix for Thursday and Friday; another scenario has it move just far enough away to keep us partly cloudy and mainly dry. I will lean toward the later but only time will tell! Have a great day!
