Hot and Increasingly Humid Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature rising temperatures and humidity as southerly/southwesterly breezes continue to carry tropical air into the region. Expect high temps to range from the low 90s in the foothills/interior coastal plain to mid 80s in the mountains and along much of the rest of the coastal plain. The only cool spots will be right along the shoreline where onshore flow will keep temps in the mid 70s. Dew points will cross the 60 degree threshold later this afternoon/evening which moves us from “comfortable” conditions to “sticky” conditions (at least in my book). Skies will remain mostly sunny and precipitation chances will remain negligible until this weekend.
