The heat and humidity is on the rise!

GET READY FOR MORE HEAT AND HUMIDITY

It turns hotter Wednesday under partly cloudy skies. Highs are near 90 again but the increasing humidity will make it feel hotter.   With the added moisture and warmer temperatures, a few late day thunderstorms are possible.   There is a marginal chance storms could contain hail and gusty winds.  Storm Prediction Center has us in a marginal or low risk for severe weather.

By Thursday, it is feeling more sticky and uncomfortable outside. Highs are hotter in the lower 90s.  If spending time outdoors, it will feel like upper 90s because of the higher humidity. While most should stay dry, a stray thunderstorm or two can’t be ruled out later in the day. It is hot to end the week with highs still around 90 degrees.  It continues muggy to oppressive right into the start of the weekend.
