The AccuWeather forecast says our temperatures will reach a high of 87 today.
Higher humidity and lighter winds toward the middle of the state- shown in the orange areas on the map at left-- will make that feel as if it is close to 100 degrees, according to the advisory (below)
It will be mainly dry this morning, but showers and thunderstorms will develop this afternoon.
Some of those rainstorms could bring toprrential downpours, large hail and damaging wind gusts. A cold front will cross the region Wednesday, with temperatures returning to near normal levels on Thursday.
For Independence Day, expect clear to partly cloudy skies and a high temperature near 73.
