Humid today, little chance for any significant rain through the weekend

Posted: Updated:

Good Thursday.  We are stuck in a hot, humid pattern for the next few days as a low-pressure center sits to our south pumping in warm, muggy air from the Gulf on the back of southeast winds.  Today we will reach 92 for the high, but the heat index will top out at about 98.  We only have a slight chance for a passing shower or two, nothing that will make a dent in our near 12" rainfall deficit for the year.

Tonight we can expect partly to mostly cloudy skies with lows in the mid-70s.  Tonight is also peak viewing for the Perseid Meteor Shower.  It will be an active one with about 200 meteors per hour.  If you get away from the city lights, grab a lawn chair, and look up for about an hour you should get enough o a break in the clouds to at least see a few.

Friday and Saturday will be much the same as today.   Warm and muggy with highs in the low 90s and only a passing shower or two to hang our hopes on.  An approaching front on Sunday will up our rain chances a bit as we head into next week.
