Very humid today with mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers

There may be a thunderstorm in the mix as well, but severe weather is unlikely. The humidity will be steamy from now until it drops off during the day Saturday.

While today won't be as hot as yesterday in terms of the actual temperature, the higher humidity will make it feel a bit steamier. With all that humidity in place, the atmosphere will be similar to a wet sponge, as showers may pop up any time during the day. Overall, it won't be a washout of a day with mostly cloudy skies and warm temperatures.

Tonight, showers (and possibly a thunderstorm) linger throughout the night, with lows in the 60s to near 70 and nearly-tropical humidity.

Saturday will start off warm and humid. Then a cold front will move through around midday bringing a shower or storm in spots followed by clearing and less humid conditions.
