Although it’s quite toasty out, it will be a nice evening to spend outdoors, especially once the sun goes down and temperatures cool off a bit. Into tonight, expect mild conditions with lows in the mid 70′s under partly cloudy skies.

The summer heat and humidity are expected to carry into this weekend! Highs tomorrow will climb to the lower 90′s, but it will likely feel closer to 100 with the humidity factored in. Showers and storms are possible tomorrow, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours as a disturbance moves in. The severe threat for tomorrow is low (1/5 Marginal Risk), but some storms could be on the gusty side.

More afternoon/evening scattered showers and storms are also possible into Sunday too with highs in the lower 90′s. Summer-like showers and storms are in the forecast for much of the new work week. It won’t rain all day long across the entire area, but hit and miss pop-up downpours and storms are possible each afternoon. Highs through the week will be quite seasonal in the upper 80′s and 90′s.
