It was blazing hot today, and tomorrow will be the same, maybe even a degree or two hotter. There is a Heat advisory in place until 7 PM Tuesday.

Tonight will remain very warm and muggy with lows in the mid to upper 70s. We can’t rule out some isolated showers, but most of us will stay dry tonight.

Tuesday may start out with a stray coastal, tropical shower, but then, temps will rise into the mid to upper 90s. It will be sweltering. The heat index could get as high as 112º. While most of the day will be dry, showers and storms are possible in the evening. Some of those showers could be strong. Wednesday will remain hot and humid with highs in the mid 90s. There will be another chance for showers and storms in the afternoon and evening.

There is a marginal (1 out of 5) risk for strong to severe thunderstorms Tuesday and Wednesday. Some of these storms could produce heavy rain, gusty winds, and frequent lightning.

More rain is likely on Thursday and Friday, which means it won’t be quite as hot, thanks to the cloud cover and rain. Highs will top out in the mid to upper 80s to low 90s for areas with more sunshine.

No tropical development is expected this week in the Atlantic, Caribbean, and Gulf.
