Showers, thunderstorms on tap for a hot, humid Sunday afternoon

Local News Weather      Staying warm & humid as we begin a new workweek
       By Vanessa Alonso

Heat Index will make it feel around 100 so stay cool & hydrated with water.

Friday will be mostly sunny and hot with a high of 92 and a low of 67. How far west that airmass will get depends on how "cool" it may get. Lows will be in the mid to upper 60s. Heat indices all week will range anywhere from 95-106.

The Saharan dust reduced our air quality this weekend, especially by Saturday evening. If you suffer from respiratory health problems, it wouldn't be a good idea to spend time outdoors. With the daytime heating, a few isolated showers and storms in the afternoon/evening. The risk for severe weather will be limited as well. Southwest wind around 5 miles per hour becoming calm in the morning.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): A weak disturbance introduces more clouds along with scattered shower and thunderstorm activity, but most of the day should be dry under partly sunny skies and slightly higher humidity (middle 60s dew points) as highs reach the middle to upper 80s. Winds SE 5-15 miles per hour.

The sun may peak itself out behind the clouds on Thursday. South southwest wind 5 to 10 miles per hour.

Continuing rain and storms from Tuesday night into Wednesday, we're shaping up to have another rainy day for Wednesday as well. Highs in the mid 90s. Southwest wind around 5 miles per hour. I do think it's highly unlikely that anyone won't see at least some measurable rainfall between now and Thursday afternoon.

The rain was well timed today in decreasing the dust across our area.
