Our unsettled pattern has come to an end and the heat & humidity is quickly becoming the focus of the forecast!

Scattered showers and storms will still be possible on a daily basis (mainly in the afternoon and evening hours), but coverage will be much less impressive than what we had through most of July so far.

As far as temperatures go, afternoon highs will only be climbing from here! Expect the low 90s today and tomorrow, and the mid 90s this weekend into next week. A potent ridge of high pressure building in from the west will be responsible for the heat-up, and the recent rainfall and added humidity will be responsible for excessively steamy feels like temperatures! Stay hydrated during those outdoor plans this week and feels like temperatures on either side of 105° will be possible!
