Comfortable start gives way to a warm and humid afternoon…

Despite a cool start we will have a warmer day on tap thanks to a southwesterly shift in the wind. Highs will crest 90 degrees today with a touch of humidity. A front will come though tonight and could fire off a storm or two, especially northwest of town, but it will most likely come through dry for most. Temperatures back off into the middle 80s with lots of sun and very comfortable air. By the long holiday weekend we will see another surge of heat and humidity that will make for a more typical late August feel. Temperatures peak in the 90s with a couple of afternoon storms by Sunday and Labor Day, but nothing to cancel plans over. Have a great day!
