The overnight period is quiet, with perhaps a few residual showers. Lows fall into the upper 60s to middle 70s.

There’s a small chance for some strong to severe thunderstorms, with damaging wind gusts and heavy downpours as the primary threats. Highs are contained in the 80s. It’s still quite muggy too.
COOLER & LESS HUMID: Behind Tuesday’s system, a change in air mass is on the way for the region. Humidity levels drop Tuesday night, so conditions feel more comfortable in time for Wednesday morning. Temperatures are even lower too! Expect readings in the upper 70s to lower 80s with plentiful sunshine. The abundant sun continues for Thursday.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK: The weekend turns a bit more unsettled. It’s muggier too. Saturday looks to bring plenty of dry time, but there’s the chance for a couple afternoon thunderstorms. Sunday brings a much better chance for showers as a system rides of the coast and brings moisture into the region. Temperatures are in the lower 80s on Saturday, and they could be a bit lower Sunday depending on shower coverage and timing.
