Friday will be our hot and humid day this week. Temperatures warm again to 90 degrees and with sticky dew points, it will feel like the low 90s in the afternoon hours. It also looks like isolated storms will pop because of the heat and humidity. This is also aided by a cold front developing to the north.

This cold front will drop across the area triggering scattered showers and storms on Saturday with highs in the mid 80s. Sunday looks more rain free as the front sags south past the Tri-State. Our highs will be in the mid 80s again with partly cloudy skies.

Our 4th of July forecast is looking partly cloudy and a bit warmer with highs in the upper 80s again. We still have a slight chance for rain even into the fireworks hour. We're tracking it now.
