Although we didn’t see too much in the way of storminess this morning, clouds from the complex that dived out of the Ohio Valley kept our skies gray. Highs rebounded toward the mid-80s this afternoon, and those temperatures were accompanied by moderate to high levels of humidity, helping it feel like midsummer out there.

Muggy lows will be in the mid-60s to near 70. Winds will be light and variable after sunset. Some very isolated fog may form in the usual spots.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): We’ll see a good deal of sun throughout the day. Humidity will be down slightly but still moderate, so not exactly comfortable. Highs will try for the mid- and upper 80s in most spots. Winds will be from the south, around five to 10 mph.
