Good afternoon everyone! It was another scorcher across the area as highs topped out in the lower 90s, but it felt more like the lower 100s! A great day to grab a snowball or two if you ask me!

We'll stay muggy overnight tonight and into Friday morning as lows only drop into the upper 70s

We should remain fairy quiet through Friday morning and into the early afternoon time frame before storms start to bubble up to our north thanks to a frontal boundary that will be approaching the area. These storms will progress southward toward our area by late afternoon and into the evening. Highs will top out in the lower 90s once again before the storms arrive as our heat indices soar into the lower 100s. We'll hold rain chances at 60%, but again, that will be heavily focused for later in the day and into the evening.

Daily rain chances will remain in the forecast through the holiday weekend as the boundary looks to park itself across the Gulf region. Rain chances will stick to around 60%, but no particular day is looking like a washout. If you have any outdoor plans, just be prepared to dodge some afternoon storms from time to time. Highs will top out in the upper 80s and close to 90 degrees area wide through the weekend.

High pressure will look to build back into the area from the Southeast by mid and latter parts of next week which will bring down our rain chances and crank up the heat once again. Y'all have a good one!

In the tropics: All remains quiet and should remain that way for at least the next 5 days.
