A weak frontal boundary will continue to make its way closer to the region. This will give our area an increase in the rain chances for today. The passing of the boundary will leave us with winds out of the north. This means we should expect drier air and slightly cooler temperatures for the rest of the work week. Rain chances remain steady after Tuesday at 20%. But today's highs in the mid 90s will accompany a 40% chance of showers this afternoon.
This evening we may see a linger spot shower or two during the early evening hours along the northeastern portions of the state. Temps will fall into the lower 70s and winds will gently drift from the north at 5 mph.
Tomorrow the chances of rain will once again climax in the heat of the afternoon. Highs will reach into (or just shy of) the mid 90s, the heat index will reach above 100 degrees. The winds will continue to push from the north, so at least it will be a 'drier' wind, and the chance of rain drops to 30%. Wednesday through Friday the chances of rain drop to 20%.
