With the the humidity in place, temperatures will feel like 100-103 again during the late afternoon hours today. Just a 20% chance of an isolated shower is in the forecast for this afternoon.

The forecast for the rest of the week and into the weekend features very little changes. We will hold onto a slight rain chance Thursday at 20% with temperatures similar to what we see this afternoon. As we head toward the weekend, both the humidity and rain chances will slowly start to creep back up. Our heat index by the end of the weekend will make a run for 100-105 each afternoon with a 30% chance of scattered showers/storms returning on Sunday.
