Temperatures over inland areas reached 90 degrees again yesterday for the sixth straight day of a heat wave.

This afternoon, temperatures may once again reach that mark over inland areas before showers and thunderstorms arrive.

I'm not expecting any widespread rainfall in most areas, and we'll miss thunderstorms all together. The humidity will be noticeable once again, but we are looking at some drier weather here as we head for the weekend.

The dew point should fall back somewhat on Friday and continue into Saturday.  Late in the weekend, more moisture will arrive with the chance of a few showers.

Early next week, some of this moisture may bring some heavier downpours.  The added clouds will keep temperatures down, so I don’t expect we will be seeing much 90-degree weather next week, either.
