Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 96°
  • 73°

Hazy, hot and humid through next Wednesday.  Highs will be in the middle to upper 90s with heat index values between 100 and 105 degrees.  It's not record heat but it's hotter than we have been most of the summer.  Morning lows will start in the lower to middle 70s.

Rain chances will improve slowly early next week but they won't peak until a weak frontal boundary moves in Wednesday or Thursday.  Temperatures will likely fall back into the 80s late next week behind the front.  Looking long range we just might see highs in the middle 80s with lows in the lower to middle 60s for the end of August and the beginning of September.

Have a great night.
