Hazy, hot and humid are today's buzzwords. The weak cold front that was responsible for the thunder and lightning (note: lightning safety tips) that brushed the city yesterday should scuttle across the metro region later today. The high should reach the upper 80s before the front passes. There's a slight chance of scattered showers this afternoon and evening.

It's no colder behind the cold front. In fact the thin wedge of less humid air behind the front means tomorrow will warm up a couple of degrees to around 90. Should be a sunny day too. Humidty returns on Wednesday, when the temperature will again be in the upper 80s. Along with the moisture the chance of showers returns Wednesday night into Thursday. July should end with another warm day.

August begins where July ended. Friday and next weekend are currently looking like they will be slightly warmer than normal with a slight chance of showers.
