Rain chances remain low as the heat continues to dominate the forecast.

A few light sprinkles were out there early Thursday morning before drier air started to filter into the area which ruled out any sort of storm activity this afternoon. Instead, partly cloudy skies dominated as highs settled into the lower 90s.

Low temperatures tonight and into Friday morning will drop back into the upper 60s and lower 70s area wide.

Drier air will continue to dominate into Friday which means rain chances will sit at around 10% or less. Although with daytime heating/sea breeze effect we can never totally rule out a rogue storm or two. Our high temperatures will once again return to the lower and mid 90s under partly sunny skies. Heat indices will sit in the upper 90s. Heat precautions remain advised as per usual for this time of year.

Southerly flow will return for the weekend which means humidity will be on the increase to near normal values for this time of year as rain chances return to around 20-30%.

A little bit more moisture will be around for next week, so expect a slightly better coverage of storms in our afternoons, but all in all, the forecast remains rather summer-like through the next several days.

In the tropics: For the first time in a while, the NHC is not highlighting any areas of interests out in the Atlantic. No new developments are expected in the next five days.
