Temperatures today have already climbed into the lower 90s for most locations with ample sunshine through a bit of haze in the atmosphere today. We will endure a warm night tonight with lows dropping down into the lower to middle 70s. Tomorrow looks to be the hottest day in almost two years as we should climb to the middle and upper 90s area wide. Heat indices will be near and just above 100 degrees.
We start to get a bit of relief on Wednesday as clouds build, which should drop highs from Tuesday by a degree or two. A cold front will be approaching from the north, and any rain this system produces should be after sunset Wednesday but mostly on Thursday. A few isolated showers and storms will be possible, but nothing widespread.
Behind the front, cooler air arrives as lows dip into the lower and middle 60s and highs drop back closer to 90. We will rebound back into the lower to middle 90s by the end of the weekend with just a pop-up storm chance possible.
Off the Florida coast, an area of low pressure is showing increasing signs of organization. It should become a tropical depression or storm later today or Tuesday. If it is named, it will be Arthur. Any interests along the Atlantic seaboard should monitor this system closely. For the latest, go to wtok.com/weather/hurricane.
