TUESDAY: As many head back to work, the umbrellas may be needed at times. Alberto will be moving inland, east of the state, but will have enough of an influence to bring a few bands of showers and storms to the region. Highs, under a mix of clouds and sun skies, will top out in the upper 80s. Storm chances will diminish after sunset with lows dropping back into the upper 60s and lower 70s.
WEDNESDAY: Alberto will be heading well north of the area; bringing in drier air aloft that will warm quiet efficiently. Expect partly to mostly sunny skies with highs in the lower 90s – feeling closer to 100°, thanks to the humid air at the surface. A few showers and storms may pop of with the daytime heating.
MID-LATE WEEK: A pattern shift will bring warmer temperatures, yet continued chances for hit and miss storms almost daily as a ridge of high pressure builds just to our west. Highs will make their way into the lower and middle 90s, but feeling much hotter than that with heat indices likely above 100° for several days.
