Today has been a typical late July day with highs well into the 90s with "Feels like" temps over 100. It looks like the pattern will stay the same as we head into the upcoming weekend.
The upper high responsible for the drier and hotter weather will stay in place at least through Sunday. Most areas will stay dry, but a spotty strong storm can't be ruled out. In the tropics, so far so good as things remain quiet in the Gulf.
