If you were outside for any length of time on Monday I'm sure you noticed how humid it felt.  Our atmosphere is "juiced up" with plenty of Gulf moisture and that will set the stage for scattered showers and storms on Tuesday.  Any storms that do develop will have the potential for locally heavy downpours. 

The heat returns Wednesday and the humidity is not going anywhere...  Get ready for some UGLY heat!  850 mb temperatures on Wednesday will be 20.50 C and 22.20 C on Thursday.  Producing highs in the mid to upper 90s add to that dew points in the 70s and we are looking at Heat Indices ranging from 100-1070 F.  Temperatures will remain in the low to mid 90s Friday through early next week, so we are looking at another long stretch of hot and humid weather.  Stay Cool!!!
