Weather Summary:

The heat is here to stay, but now the typical summer-time humidity is back. A cold front has been moving ever so slowly towards the area, with little to no push to help it along the way. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be around this evening and again Wednesday afternoon/evening. A few strong storms are possible with heavy rainfall, gusty winds, small hail, and frequent lightning.

On Thursday, a weather system will ride along a front nearby, producing widespread showers and storms. Rain is most likely Thursday afternoon through early Friday.

The main threat at this time would be for heavy rainfall and gusty winds, especially on Thursday afternoon and evening. Leftover moisture and cloud cover will provide another chance for rain on Friday, with temperatures being a few degrees below the average. Localized flooding may be possible in spots that see heavier amounts of rainfall both days.

If you’re already thinking about the weekend, it looks as though things will dry out for most of us. High temperatures will moderate, in the mid 80s, this weekend.

Recap: Highs in the mid 80s to lower 90s Wednesday, then low to mid 80s Thursday through Monday. Lows in the 60s all week.

Our average high is 85°, low 64°.
