Good Tuesday to one and all. We continue to be in a July-like pattern here in the middle of May, but things will change quickly by the weekend. This is when we get into a setup featuring more thunderstorms, followed by a much cooler look for next week.

Highs today and Wednesday will generally hit the mid and upper 80s for most of the state. A local 90 degree thermometer can’t be ruled out as skies stay mainly sunny.

Make it a great Tuesday and take care.
