HOT AND HUMID WEATHER
Highs today will warm toward the mid 90s in many spots in the area. When you add the effects of the humidity into the equation, some of us could push 100 degrees for the heat index later today. So, for all of the kids' practices and what-not, please take frequent water breaks today.
A few PM showers and storms will also form, and those chances will extend into this evening.
Afternoon storm chances will continue through the weekend. However, with time, the heat will slowly back down with some upper 80s for highs Friday through the weekend.
Tropical Storm Dolly has formed in the Gulf of Mexico and will head into NE Mexico late tonight. Flooding and mudslide issues are the big threats there.
TODAY: Partly cloudy and hot with a few PM storms. High 94.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with a chance of a shower or storm. Low 71.
WEDNESDAY: Partly sunny with a chance of showers and storms. High 91.
