Only a few showers and storms out there this afternoon and evening, very few. Temperatures will run at or above 90 degrees through sundown for most places. Eventually we will cool into the 70s overnight, but it will be quite gradual.
This weekend there will be a 20-30% chance for showers and storms with highs in the mid 90s. It will be humid, too, with head index values up around 105.
Next week, typical August weather continues with highs int he low to mid 90s and a 30-40% chance for afternoon storms each day. Overnight lows will be in the 70s.
All the while, the tropics remain quiet. For now. Things look to pick back up again as we head past Aug. 16.
