Summertime heat and humidity is back in full swing after an unsettled July so far... Highs will reach the low 90s this afternoon but feels like temperatures will exceed 100°. Anticipate scattered downpours and storms today and tomorrow as a couple of disturbances move overhead, but no washouts are anticipated!

Temperatures will be regularly starting out in the mid 70s and topping out in the low-mid 90s through the rest of the 7-day forecast. Of course, with the added humidity, dangerous feels like temperatures above 105° will be possible at times. Be sure to stay hydrated if you have any upcoming plans outdoors!

Outside of a few spotty downpours from time-to-time Sunday and Monday, scattered storms will increase in coverage a bit by Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
