.DISCUSSION...
Much less activity today as the ridge aloft has help to
keep precipitation in check. This pattern will hold into
tomorrow before showers and thunderstorms return back into
the forecast on Thursday into Friday. Temps today have climbed
into the lower 90s with the heat indices running around 104
to 108 today. Tomorrow looks to be a carbon copy of today
as plenty of sunshine will kick temps temps back into the 90s...
and heat indices above the century mark.

Tonight... temps to drop into the the mid to upper 70s as dew
points are hanging around that temp.

Storms on Thursday into Friday will hold afternoon temps back a
bit as rain cooled air spills acrs the region.

The weekend is shaping up well with chances for showers dropping.

The tropic`s are becoming a bit more active as we approach the
height of the Hurricane season.
