Morning showers and perserving afternoon clouds capped high temperatures in the mid-80s. But it was miserably humid. An isolated thundershower is possible this evening before a slight downtick in humidity and cloud cover on Friday. But it’s plenty hot, probably 90+ degree day number 53 of 2012.

Through Tonight: Shocking, I know- we remain oppressed by the humidity while running the risk (20 percent) of an isolated, heavy and slow-moving thundershower. Any thundershowers should collapse after dark. .Lows range from the upper 60s in the cooler suburbs to the low 70s downtown. Patchy fog is likely by morning.

Friday: Humidity levels decrease modestly, but it’s still a bit sticky. After any fog burns off, we have more sunshine than today, boosting high temperatures to around 90. You might notice a light wind from the south at 5-10 mph mainly during the afternoon.
