Tonight: Showers and storms will push closer from the west with a cold front tonight, but this rain should weaken and dissipate before it gets here. Eventual lows overnight will be in the lower to middle 70s.

>>Heat index: What is it? Why does it matter?

Monday: Another hot and muggy day is expected today. After waking up in the 70s, we'll see highs today in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. With the humidity, it's going to feel more like the upper 90s at times. There's also a better chance to see a few showers and storms today. The best chances come during the afternoon and early evening hours.

Tuesday: The chance for a few showers or storms returns, along with the heat and the humidity. Highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees with heat index values in the upper 90s.

Thursday: We're back in the low to mid 90s with heat index values near 100 degrees. Again a stray shower can't be ruled out but most look to stay dry.
