Hot and humid conditions stick around for Tuesday but only a stray shower or thunderstorm will be possible in the afternoon. Highs will range from the upper 80s to lower 90s.

On Wednesday and Thursday, we’re mainly looking at hot, humid, and hazy conditions throughout most of the day with some scattered showers and thunderstorms developing in the afternoon; expect highs in the lower 90s.

For the end of week into the weekend, we’ll be keeping a close eye on cold front which will likely increase the coverage in showers and storms across the area. Highs on Friday into the weekend will drop from the lower 90s into the upper 80s.
