The humidity starts to return along with storm chances during the midweek.

WARMING WITH STORM CHANCES: Wednesday starts to see some warming, but it does come with some shower and storm chances. The day starts sunny, but then clouds move in fast during the afternoon. It turns humid, with temperatures in the lower to middle 80s. There’s the chance for showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon, and that chance continues through the night.

STEAMY WEEKEND OUTLOOK: The heat and humidity continue to crank up for Friday and Saturday! Temperatures slip into the upper 80s to lower 90s on Friday under plenty of sunshine. Heat indices reach the middle to upper 90s. Saturday is even hotter, with extremely uncomfortable humidity levels. Expect temperatures in the lower to middle 90s. Heat indices could reach lower 100s.
