Tonight:  Mostly clear then late cloudiness and areas of fog. Mild and muggy. Lows: 64-70. Winds: Light South.

Tuesday:  Sun and clouds, with a scattered afternoon shower or storm possible.  Hot and humid.  Highs: 88-92 (dew points: 66-74).  Winds: S/SW 5-15 mph.

Tuesday Night:  Increasing clouds with some late evening or overnight downpours or thunderstorms possible then partial clearing with some patchy fog overnight.  Mild and muggy.  Lows: 62-68.  Winds: SW -> NW 4-12 mph.

Wednesday:  Early clouds then mostly sunny, breezy at times and much less humid.  Highs: 80-86 (dew points: 50s).


Overnight, it will be dry, warm and humid with lows in the upper 60s to near 70°.  More fog is expected tomorrow morning near and for a few hours after sunrise. The rest of the day will be quite warm and humid again with highs up in the lower 90s (which rivals the warmest days we’ve had all summer!).  

The chance for a widely scattered afternoon shower or storm can’t be ruled out but the best chance for a downpour or thunderstorm will be late in the evening when a cold front approaches and then moves through overnight.  Because of the timing of the front getting here well after dark, severe weather isn’t likely but a some locally heavy rainfall is quite possible.

Behind the front, drier air pours in Wednesday.  It’s not as hot too with highs in the lower and middle 80s under mostly sunny skies.  Thursday and Friday should be beautiful with high pressure overhead and then just to our east by late Friday.
