It will be another scorcher as highs soar to the low to mid-90s and it will feel like the 100s when you factor in the high humidity. Scattered showers and storms will develop in the afternoon across the interior and then push east into the coastal metro areas through the evening hours. Since the steering flow is fairly light, storms may be slow movers and produce heavy rainfall and localized flooding. Lightning and gusty winds will also be possible with some of the storms.
Wednesday night will be warm and humid with lows in the upper 70s.
The rain chance increases Thursday into Friday due to the moisture “tail” associated with Ida and a mid-level trough.
