Plan on another scorcher with highs in the mid 90s and heat index values in the triple digits. There won't be a lot of cooling rain today, although there could be some scattered rain activity along the coast.

By the end of the week, the high pressure and dry Saharan Dust will move on. This will allow moisture to increase and rain chances will follow suit. Expect more showers and storms around Thursday and Friday. It won't be a huge relief from the heat, but highs should return to near average in the low 90s.

Little change is expected through the weekend with a mix of sun and storms each day and highs in the low 90s.

It may heat up again early next week ahead of a front. The front may stall in our area by the middle of next week bringing better rain chances again.

Subtropical Depression 5 formed in the north-central Atlantic and poses no threat to land. The tropics remain quiet elsewhere.
