    The Saharan dust is still around today, keeping the sky hazy. That’s also why we should not see much rain, if any at all. I do have a 10% chance for one or two shower this afternoon. The temperatures will still be hot today. Highs this afternoon will reach the mid 90s. Overnight, it will be generally clear. I do not expect any rain. It should be a nice evening if you have any outdoor plans. It will also be warm and muggy. The temperature will cool down to the mid 70s overnight.
