Less humid air arriving - Live Doppler 13 Weather Blog

The heat and humidity continue today. While we will stay just shy of the 90° mark with highs in the mid to upper 80s, it'll still feel more like 90 with the heat index.

A stalled frontal boundary is situated in the southern half of the state and will prompt stray showers the afternoon from approximately 3 to 8 p.m.

After 8 p.m., we'll lose daytime heating and the extra energy in the atmosphere to sustain new rain showers. It remains mostly cloudy into the evening with a gradual clearing overnight.

High pressure will build in from the north overnight pushing the boundary out of the area making way for drier, more comfortable air for Monday. We start the day in the upper 60s with highs in the mid 80s under a sunny sky.

The "Muggy Meter" looks fantastic for Monday and Tuesday -- dew point temperatures in the 50s = very comfortable air.

Dry weather continues for Tuesday but it will be slightly warmer with highs back in the upper 80s feeling a little muggy in the afternoon.

Wednesday will be another warmer, uncomfortable day with oppressive dew points and a high near 90.

Drier, cooler air ensues behind a passing late-day cold front Wednesday bringing back much more comfortable conditions with lower humidity for the end of the week.

The overall pattern will be rather dry through the next week with the exception of that cold front set to bring stray storms in late Wednesday into Thursday morning.

Looking ahead to next weekend -- this break in the heat doesn't last long. It looks dry for now but with highs back in the lower 90s.
