Warmer, more humid air returning on backside of weakening high pressure moving off to the east and, while many spots will be dry today, there is enough moisture and instability to combing with an weak upper-level disturbance to allow a shower or thunderstorm to pop-up this afternoon into this evening with the best chance of that off to the north and west…just played as a mention in the forecast.

With high pressure still expected to be the driving force behind our weather today and tomorrow, expect plenty of sunshine and low humidity.
The temperature reached the 90s a day earlier than what we had anticipated, and now today with the greater threat for some strong thunderstorms this afternoon, there could be enough clouds to prevent the temperature from returning to the lower-90s. We will keep the previous forecast of 88 that was made/altered yesterday afternoon, which is still quite warm.
