FOLLOW UP: oppressive heat and humidity

Tonight: Some isolated rains and storms will be possible in the north this afternoon and tonight. Some may be strong, but the severe threat is on the bottom side. All others to the south will be left with partly cloudy skies. It will be very hot and humid at night, with low temperatures between 70 and 70 degrees and a windy south southeast wind of 10-20 mph.

Monday: Monday should be our hottest day with highs in the upper 80s and low 90s. It will also be very muggy with heat rates in the mid-90s to close to 100. The skies appear to remain partially cloudy with a slight chance of showers and emerging storms. I think most of it remains dry by Monday. Stay cool and hydrated.

We will remain partially cloudy on Monday night with lows close to 70. With high humidity, I do not recommend opening the windows.

Tuesday: The highs will only be a little colder with highs from the mid to upper 80s, which offers no relief as the humidity stays high, just not as high as Monday. There may be an isolated rain or storm with most seeing partly cloudy skies.

Wednesday: Wednesday will be our next best chance of rain and storm with scattered storms possible along with partly sunny skies. It is the same old song and dance with deep temperatures in the 80s with tropical humidity.

Rest of the week and July Weekend: The chances of rain and storm don’t seem very impressive for Thursday, but I didn’t rule out an isolated storm. We are dry for Friday, July 4.thand Sunday with mostly sunny or partly cloudy skies (what luck, right?). However, even though the humidity won’t be extreme, it will still be uncomfortable, especially considering the fact that the 90s are likely for the weekend with heat ratings from the mid-90s to around 100. Lows will be in the upper 60s.
