Strong thunderstorms Monday evening have taken a lot of the energy out of the atmosphere and things have calmed down this morning. There is still a good amount of moisture in place as the front is still north of the region, but expected to move through today. The front should be able to generate a few storms around midday and early this afternoon, and then drop into the Gulf of Mexico. As the front continues to move south, expect the humidity levels to drop of this afternoon with northerly breezes.
Temperatures will be near average today with highs near 93. The chance for rain will hold at about 30%.
Because the air will be drier, the temperatures can swing more between the high and low. We should be closer to 70 tonight with a few locations north of I-10 dropping into the upper 60s. A couple of pleasant days ahead with sunshine and temperatures in the low 90s. Humidity will be low, so it should be more comfortable. Lows and night the next couple of days should be in the upper 60s and low 70s.
