EVENING: Scattered storms, humid. Temps near 88.
WEDNESDAY: Hot & Humid, Scattered PM T-Storms. Hi 92.
TONIGHT: Mostly Cloudy, Muggy. Lo 72.
Storms are tracking eastward, mainly north of the Turnpike this evening. These storms are providing temporary relief from the heat, but adding more humidity into the air. Any showers and storms near sunset should quickly diminish after dark.
The little bit of remnants left from Barry arrives on Wednesday to bring another round of scattered storms Wednesday afternoon and evening. Some of these storms will pack very heavy rain from the tropical moisture. Watch for ponding of water!
Clouds will be slow to clear Thursday, but as soon as the sun burns through the clouds Thursday afternoon, we quickly climb to 90 degrees.
Friday begins the 3 day stretch of extreme heat and humidity. Afternoon highs will reach the mid 90s, with very high humidity. This will produce a heat index of 105 to 110 degrees! Please use caution if you are planning any strenuous outdoor activities over the weekend.
