One day more of excessive heat and humidity as the Bermuda high pressure continues to dominate our weather. High temperatures will again be well up into the 90s and with the humidity will cause heat indexes to rise to near 110. An excessive heat warning is in effect. There is a better chance of late day and early evening showers and thunderstorms with some storms possibly strong to severe.
The Bermuda high pressure will be moving further offshore and a cold front will cross our area Thursday night with showers and thunderstorms with some heavy rain likely. With the clouds and precipitation temperatures will not be as hot, but the humidity will only slowly decrease.
Showers will continue to be likely on Friday with some heavy rain again possible, high temperatures will only rise to the upper 70s.
