Heavy rain threat this week

Rounds of showers and thunderstorms will continue to push across the state this week. Now we get some tropical temperatures and humidity to join the mix

The overall setup features storms coming in from northwest to southeast through the end of the week. Here’s a breakdown of what to expect:

Humidity will get even higher in the coming days. This steamy air will help fuel the development of heavy rain-producing showers and storms. Watch for local high water problems as storms move through.

The air is going to turn very steamy this week. Any day that doesn’t feature thunderstorms could see highs in the upper 80s. Regardless of the temps, it’s going to feel like a sauna out there.

This pattern won’t hold very long, and I see things trending cooler again as we head into next week. That could set the stage for some pleasant weather as we head toward Labor Day.
