Not As Humid But Still Warm

You can definitely feel the drop in the Muggy Meter as dewpoints continue to fall into the 50s and lower 60s. Though less humid, afternoon highs will be equally as warm as Sunday... with temperatures topping-out in the mid/upper 80s this afternoon.

The haze in the sky you're seeing continues to increase as remnant smoke from Canadian wildfires drifts southward.

Though this smoke layer may be thick between this afternoon and Wednesday... it's typically aloft and usually doesn't impact air quality. However, it does normally produce very colorful sunrises and sunsets.

Give the A/Cs a break tonight with lows ranging from the mid/upper 50s north to 60-65F central/south. Tuesday begins comfortable, but the dry air heats up quickly with abundant sun. Highs top-out near 90 and the humidity makes a return.

Humid heat produces heat indices near 100F again Wednesday afternoon with isolated late-day downpours and storms possible. Though only expecting 30% coverage... some of these storms could become severe.

The passage of a cool front Wednesday night drops temperatures a bit Thursday and Friday, but we're on target for a hot weekend of highs in the 90s and peak heat indices near/above 100F.
