It will remain humid Wednesday and Thursday, with temperatures in the mid- to upper 80s. We will have showers, heavy at times, and even a few thunderstorms both those days.

Moisture will keep flowing Friday and through the weekend, with temperatures in the mid- to upper 80s. The humidity will stick around right through the weekend, as well as daily rain chances.
