Aaaaaaaand it’s back -- the ‘relief’ from the heat was very short-lived as typical late-June temperatures & triple digit heat index values have made their quick return Wednesday afternoon. With plenty of moisture in place, daytime heating may help spark a few passing showers/stray rumble before the day is done, though most of the area looks to sit on the dry (but warm & muggy) side for Wednesday evening plans.

More of the same message is in store for the second half of the week -- thermometers only dip down into the muggy upper 70s to kick off the morning drive followed by temperatures in the mid 90s and feels-like temperatures in the triple digits by the afternoons. Continue to stay hydrated if you have to be out and about, especially during the peak heating times of the day! Speaking of peak heating -- we’ll keep eyes on the chance to see a few more isolated showers pop up Thursday and Friday afternoons off the sea breeze moving inland, but the rain chances through the first half of the weekend are looking to be isolated at best. Changes arrive as early as Sunday as moisture from the Gulf paired with approaching disturbances bring back a daily scattered rain and storm chance that lasts through the better part of next week. Stay tuned!

Wednesday Night: Mostly clear. Low: 77. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Partly cloudy with an isolated afternoon rain chance. High: 96. Heat index: 106. Wind: S 5-10 mph.

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

Friday: Partly cloudy with an isolated afternoon rain chance. High: 96. Heat index: 106. Wind: S 5-15 mph.
