Today's Forecast Image

*Hazy, hot and humid
*Very low rain chances through Friday
*Weekend storms on the return

 

Rain chances remain low through Friday thanks to an upper level ridge of high pressure which also will mean heat index values around 104-106 in the afternoon. By the weekend, a weak disturbance moving across the northern Gulf of Mexico will result in a better chance of scattered thunderstorms bother Saturday and Sunday.
