Wednesday Forecast

Good Wednesday morning everyone!

Meteorologist Ryan Michaels showing today's high temperatures.

It's a quiet start on satellite and radar this morning with just a few upper level clouds cruising through. We'll have plenty of sunshine to go around this morning so grab the shades.

While it's still warm out the door to start, we're actually a bit less humid! Dew points are down into the upper 60s near 70 degrees and it's not as sultry of a start out the door, especially for the coast. However, drier air can heat up more efficiently and actual temperatures this afternoon will push the mid to upper 90s on the thermometer from the coast on inland. The good news is, the downturn in the humidity will help make the heat more tolerable this afternoon as feels like temperatures for most should avoid the triple digits. The exception to that would be the coast with a little more humidity later in the day due to the onshore breeze created by the sea breeze.

We do still have enough humidity in the air however to still give us a buoyant atmosphere and with the afternoon heat, we'll still be able to pop up some scattered storms today. With steering wind from the north, anything that develops along the sea breeze inland this afternoon has a chance of heading back down toward the coast late in the day or into the evening. They'll be largely scattered and fairly hit or miss in nature for today, with most of the activity flaring up after 3pm and lasting in some spots up until the sun sets.

While not everyone sees the rain today, the next couple days will feature a bit higher of rain chances in the afternoon and early evening as our ridge of high pressure slides further to the west.

Bottom Line...
For today, mostly to partly sunny skies with a late day shower or storm possible. Highs today reach the low 90s on the coast to upper 90s inland. And while still humid, it will not be feeling as oppressively humid as the past few days. Your 7 Day Forecast increases rain chances to a typical summery pattern of widespread hit or miss afternoon storm chances finishing out the work week.
