FORECAST: Humidity Cranks Up!

A few storms expected by Wednesday

Humidity is really starting to crank up all in response to a strong southerly wind flow. Dew points continue to climb into the lower 70s which means the air is nearly saturated. A strong disturbance will move east as we go into Wednesday. Sunshine during the day will allow for temperatures to hit the lower 90s and with the humidity in full effect look for heat index values to climb to near 100. 

Showers and thunderstorms will become more numerous going into Wednesday late afternoon shortly after peak heating of the day. There is the potential some of these storms grow to become severe. Main threat will be lightning and gusty winds however, most storms will remain fairly typical (unlike last weeks, beasts)

Storms will continue into the first portion of Wednesday night however, should wrap up after 2am.

Drier airmass filters in by the end of the week with temperatures below average (80-85 range) Normal high is 87-89°!
