To say it was hot and humid was an understatement this afternoon with a high of 95 and a heat index of 104 before the line of storms rolled through the area. Thankfully the line of storms was not severe, but it had very heavy rain, a lot of lightning and winds gusting around 40 mph. We still have a chance for some scattered showers this evening with temps in the 70s and very sticky air. Overnight, scattered t'showers redevelop with some areas getting a quick downpour. Those showers should be out of here before sunrise with morning temps in the low to mid 70s. Wednesday is partly cloudy, hot and steamy with highs near 90 and heat indices near 100. We will not have those cooling downpours tomorrow afternoon.

Thursday is cooler with highs near 80 thanks to a NE wind. It is still humid and we will have a few scattered late afternoon t'showers. The best chance for downpours is Thursday night into Friday morning. Some of the rain will be heavy. Friday is then partly cloudy, very muggy and warm with highs in the mid 80s. Saturday looks to be rain-free right now, but it will be uncomfortable with highs near 90 and thick humidity. As a cold front arrives on Sunday, expect afternoon t'showers.
