WET AT TIMES, ESPECIALLY THROUGH THURSDAY

Overnight: Mild and muggy with a a few shots at showers and thunderstorms. Patchy fog late. Lows 59-65. South wind 5 mph or less.
Wednesday: Warm and humid with scattered showers and thunderstorms, especially in the morning. Highs 75-81. Southwest wind 10 mph or less.
Wednesday Night: A few stray showers possible. Patchy fog developing late. Lows 56-61. South wind 5 mph or less.

A large area of high pressure continues to drift eastward. A warm front lifts northward as well keeping us warm with increasing humidity levels. Scattered showers and storms will develop overnight. A few of these storms have the potential to bring gusty winds, downpours and frequent lightning. The hail and tornado threats are very low. As a result of these showers, patchy fog is possible by tomorrow morning. Showers on Wednesday would be spotty in nature with the severe weather threat once again being low.
As high pressure drifts east and breaks down, a summer-like weather pattern will set up for the rest of the week. An area of low pressure that was responsible for more flooding rains and severe weather across the Plains will be forced north of our area. Ahead of this system, a southwest air flow will result in heat, humidity, and periods of rain along with scattered storms and downpours the next week.
I wouldn't cancel any outdoor plans, but check back for more details on the forecast and the latest radar. Some of the better-developed storms may contain small hail, gusty winds and downpours. An isolated severe storm today through Thursday cannot be ruled out. Stay with us for updates.
We will be stuck in a warm and moist pattern through Tuesday. That means high temperatures in the low to mid 80s with a daily shot of showers and thunderstorms with some areas getting a lot of rain while other see little to none each day.
Recap: Highs in the lower to middle 80s and lows in the lower to middle 60s this week.
Our average high is 79°, low 54°.
