ONE MORE DAY! Heat Ends With A Bang!

Six days down, one day to go in this week long heat wave (which felt like two weeks). Saturday remains hot with tropical humidity. A cold front marching in from the northwest will trigger scattered storms in the afternoon and at night. There is no need to cancel outdoor plans, but have a plan in place in case you hear thunder. Sunday morning will be noticeably less humid and the moisture in the air will continue to drop throughout the day.  By Sunday night you can finally open the windows!

Tonight: Tropical humidity. Patchy fog. Low: Mid –upper 70s

Tomorrow: Partly cloudy, hot and oppressively humid. Scattered afternoon thunderstorms. Southwest wind 10 to 20 miles an hour. High: Low 90s

Sunday: Relief at last! Partly to mostly sunny, noticeably less humid and not as hot as recent days. Mid 80s-upper 80s

Monday: Refreshing in the morning with a low temperature near 60 degrees. Mix of sun and clouds, comfortable. High: Mid 80s

Tuesday: Turning cloudy and very humid with scattered showers and storms. High: Low-Mid 80s

Wednesday: A mix of sun and clouds, chance for some afternoon showers then turning less humid. High: Low – Mid 80s
