Significant changes to the forecast start as early as Tuesday as much more humid weather returns to the area. With the increasing humidity, Tuesday will see temperatures climb into the middle and upper 80s with a few showers and storms developing by the afternoon and evening.

Tropical humidity will overspread the region starting on Wednesday and continuing through the rest of the week. This high humidity will not only make for a very muggy feel, but also bring substantially better chances of rain to the region. Rain chances Wednesday and Thursday will reach up to 60% with locally heavy rain possible at times.
