...Seasonal Temperatures & Humid With Unsettled Weather Pattern Returns This Week...

Over the past week, high temperatures have averaged 90 degrees, a couple degrees above normal for this time of year. High dewpoints have made it feel more like 100 at times. The warm and humid trend looks to continue over the next week with temperatures hovering around normal. This will keep the livestock heat stress index in the danger category on a daily basis.

Scattered showers and storms will continue through the evening hours, before diminishing overnight. Heavy rain will be the main threat with any storm. Expect more of the same tomorrow. Chances will then continue on a daily basis through the end of the week as the state enters into an unsettled pattern.
