After a quick reprieve from the regularly scheduled humid heat, our normal June temperatures are back in town. Temperatures start in the mid 70s this morning and reach the mid 90s by the afternoon (with heat index values in the triple digits) after starting off the morning in the mid 70s. A few isolate thunderstorms could popup in the afternoon due to daytime heating and plenty of moisture in the air to work with.

As high pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere moves in, the hot and muggy conditions stick with us through the end of the week. Mornings start off in the humid upper 70s, followed by afternoon highs in the mid 90s with feels-like temperatures in the triple digits. With ample moisture in place, a stray shower can’t completely be ruled out during the peak heating times of the day through the first half of the weekend. As high pressure weakens thanks to an approaching low pressure system, disturbances moving through will bring back a daily scattered rain and storm chance as early as Sunday, lasting through the better part of next week.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy with an isolated afternoon rain chance. High: 94. Wind: SSE 5-10 mph.

Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 78. Wind: S 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Partly cloudy with an isolated afternoon rain chance. High: 96. Wind: S 5-10 mph.

Thursday Night: Mostly cloudy. Low: 78. Wind: SE 0-5 mph.
