Good morning! High pressure off the east coast is responsible for the muggy and warm night we just had and it will continue to pump hot and humid air our way today.

Gusty southwest winds will help a bit and keep highs around 80 at the coast but inland highs will climb to around 90 and dew points will be in the upper 60's to mid-70's. A cold front heading our way will interact with the moisture laden air sitting over us and will cause showers and thunderstorms to develop around a 1 PM to 9 PM time frame with activity starting out in the mountains by early afternoon then working to the coast during the late afternoon and evening. Some of the storms could contain heavy rain along with damaging winds, frequent dangerous cloud to ground lightning and possibly some hail. If you have outdoor plans any where today you should keep a close watch on the sky as well as our interactive radar.

The front is going to slowly pull away from us on Thursday with cooler and drier air moving in throughout the day. High pressure will build in for Friday and Saturday and both days look very nice. Heat and humidity most likely will return on Sunday along with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Stay safe today!
