Summer is here and so is the heat and humidity. Above average July temperatures are here for the week – all while keeping a watchful eye on the tropics for a potential disturbance over the next few days. Overnight lows will settle around the 70-degree mark under partly cloudy skies. The heat and added humidity cranks up Tuesday and Wednesday with afternoon temps in the low 90s tomorrow and middle 90s on Wednesday. The heat index will make it feel even more uncomfortable. Isolated storms will be possible each afternoon. A frontal boundary will move closer to the region on Thursday bringing a better chance for storms.

Questions remain for the 4th of July as the frontal boundary stalls overhead and a potential tropical system skirts just to the east. Preliminary forecast for the holiday: partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies with the chance for a few showers and storms.
