    Through the rest of today expect skies to remain partly cloudy.  Some of those clouds have gained enough energy from day time heating to produce a quick shower.  Any more that form through the rest of the afternoon will likely rain out quickly.  Unfortunately, this does not help our temperatures much as highs will get into the 90s and feels-like temperatures will be in the triple digits.  We do have a breeze between 10-15 mph helping to keep air flowing.
