Hot and Breezy to Finish the Week
We're not totally abandoning our rain chances for the week just yet, but only a select few will see any rain today. Like the past couple days, people in our southeastern counties could see a quick downpour in the late afternoon. Otherwise, be prepared for another hot and humid day.
We start each morning through the rest of the week with temps near the 80 degree mark, some morning clouds, and a light breeze. Heat index will be a factor through the overnight and into the morning, but the mid-afternoon is where we find heat index values trying to sneak close to 110°. The consolation: We'll keep a healthy breeze from afternoon into the evening. That pattern changes just a touch after Saturday, where we turn less breezy but stay just as hot. It's August and it sure does feel like it! Stay cool.
