Another hot and humid day across the area as temperatures are already into the lower and middle 90s. Skies have been mostly clear throughout the day, and we will clear out tonight thanks to high pressure remaining in control.
Wednesday will see clouds increasing through the day as a cool front approaches from the north. Any rain with this system will arrive after in the evening hours on Wednesday with some isolated showers and storms possible. Rain will end by Thursday morning with much cooler weather on tap for Thursday and Independence Day. Highs will struggle back to the low 90s Thursday with highs in the upper 80s on Friday and lows for some in the upper 50s!
We start to warm back up through the weekend and we return to the lower and middle 90s by the start of next week. Rain chances start returning in the form of afternoon isolated showers and storms to start next week.
In the tropics, Tropical Storm Arthur, the first tropical storm of the season, has formed off the coast of Florida. As of 2pm Tuesday, winds are 40mph and it is moving northwest at 5mph. It is forecast to make landfall or brush the Outer Banks and North Carolina this weekend before it quickly is kicked out to see by the cold front that will be here late Wednesday.
