WE’VE HAD WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS AS SEVERAL FORCES ARE COMING TOGETHER TO HELP FIRE THEM OFF. — We’ve had widely scattered showers and storms over the last couple of days as several forces are coming together to help fire them off.

First, there’s the leftover tropical moisture from Hurricane Hanna that has saturated the atmosphere, along with a broad mid-level trough and the afternoon heating! These conditions will allow for some of the showers to have locally heavy rainfall.

This pattern will last for one more day before high pressure moves in and dries us out somewhat by Thursday and into the weekend.

But that comes at a price as high humidity and temperatures in the middle 90s will give us Heat Index readings between 108 and 115 degrees. Stay safe and hydrated and in the shade.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with few showers. Low: 78.

Wednesday: Widely scattered showers and storms. Hot and Humid. High: 92.
