The humidity has been on the rise and it will remain very humid through Thursday.  Temperatures will slowly climb over the next several days with highs in the low 90s by Wednesday.  With the heat and humidity, isolated thunderstorms will be possible Monday through Wednesday, but won't be widespread.  A cold front will traverse the area Thursday bringing more widely scattered thunderstorms.  Behind the front we'll catch a quick reprieve from the heat and humidity Friday before temperatures and humidity climb for next week.
