Leftover moisture form Barry will increase rain opportunities for Wednesday.

  • Tonight: Limited evening storms, then variably cloudy and muggy overnight. Low: 73°.
  • Wednesday (AWARE): Scattered showers and storms around (60%), especially in the afternoon/evening. Locally heavy rainfall is possible with some isolated flooding. High: 86°.
  • Thursday: Staying sticky with additional scattered storms around (40%). High: 88°.

It will remain rather quiet overnight with some lingering clouds and mild temperatures. Most areas will only fall off into the upper 60s to lower 70s.Some of the leftover moisture from Barry will slide into the region on Wednesday which will increase our rain opportunities. Because of this, we will be Weather AWARE.

Not everyone will see the scattered storms, but those that do can expect some locally heavy rainfall that could produce some isolated flooding. Because of the extra clouds and increase rain opportunities, temperatures will be kept down a bit with most only reaching the mid 80s. There will still be some lingering showers and storms Thursday, but coverage looks to be a little lower than what we are expecting on Wednesday. Highs will be a little warmer as well with most reaching the upper 80s.As we wrap up the work week, the rain chances go down a little bit, but the heat and humidity levels go up. Highs will creep into the lower 90s with Heat Index Values reaching the upper 90s to near 100° mark for Friday and Saturday.Rain opportunities will creep back up again for Sunday and Monday with once again, some locally heavy rainfall possibly a concern. Temperatures will drop off just a bit as well with most in the upper 80s, but it will still feel very sticky when you factor in the humidity.By next Tuesday, the atmosphere looks to dry out just a bit, meaning rain chances look much lower as do humidity levels .
