Not much changes ahead of your Tuesday. Regardless of your plans, the humidity will be felt once again as you step out the door at any point today. Highs quickly climb into the upper 80s on the beaches and the lower 90s inland, not to mention, the humidity will make it feel even warmer. Along with the hot and humid day ahead, a few scattered showers and storms will be possible today. It’s not a washout but someone picks up on those showers and storms at 30% this afternoon.

Winds continue to pump in the moisture for the high humidity and daily rain chances this week.

While our rain chances remain scattered this week, storms look a little bit more common later this weekend and into the start of next week. For now, it’s the hit and miss summer storms through Saturday. Rain chances hold at 20-30% through then, before slowly increasing to 40% by the late weekend and early next week.
