WEATHER NEWS: PM Update: A few showers or storms possible this evening


Highs in the upper 80s to around 90 are pretty typical for late July. Nonetheless, you probably felt it today after Tuesday’s milder conditions. With dew points around 70, the sweat factor was certainly of greater impact than the temperature.

With the heat and humidity hanging out in the area, a couple of showers and storms have popped up. We’ll see that continue into the evening.

Winter is coming: Today was our last calendar date with an average high of 90 degrees. Daytime highs and daytime lows should be on the downswing after our recent annual peaks. Of course, the weather doesn’t always follow climatology, but it can only battle so hard against the coming of cooler times.
