Temperatures that were near and above 90 for highs were on the toasty side of typical for early August. Add in humidity and stir as needed — you’ve got the recipe for summer around here. A weak wind-shift boundary passing by will eventually lower humidity slightly. As it moves on by, it will spark a shower or storm through the evening.
Through Tonight: A shower or storm could dot the area early, especially south. Otherwise, partly to mostly clear and summerlike. Temperatures will range from the mid-60s to low 70s for lows. Winds will blow out of the north early but become light and variable late.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): Lots of sun and a dearth of clouds. High pressure is taking hold, so that will aid the lack of cloud cover. Highs will be right around or a bit above 90 in most spots. Winds will blow lightly from the south.
Pollen update: Mold spores are moderate/high. Grass pollen is low/moderate. Weed and tree pollen is low.
