Early Friday temperatures were in the lower 80s. It will be another muggy, hot day with highs near 90. Dew point temperatures in the low to mid 70s will make it feel more like the upper 90s (heat index).
Mostly cloudy skies will persist much of the day with scattered showers and thunderstorms, especially this afternoon. If the clouds break apart, expect a quick jump in the temperature. Also, the more sunshine, the more likely thunderstorms become.
Rain and storm coverage will be about 60 percent Friday. Any storms that form could contain heavy downpours and gusty winds. Unsettled weather could last into the evening.
The moist air mass will gradually shift eastward on the weekend. Saturday will be partly to mostly cloudy with scattered thunderstorms. More sun is forecasted Sunday with only a few afternoon t-storms. Highs will be close to 90 degrees both days on the weekend.
