Temperatures will be on the hot side once again with afternoon readings of 93-95. The combination of the heat along with the relatively stagnant air will lead to poor air quality across the area today. An Air Quality Alert is in effect through the afternoon.
This means if you have respiratory issues or are in a group sensitive to poor air quality it would be a good idea to limit your time outdoors.
Interestingly we are seeing lower dewpoints in the northern half of the area, and this will mean it feels a bit better than to the south. Should also feel nicer this evening.
Otherwise rain chances will stay low today and tomorrow with mid 90s. After that all eyes are on the Gulf through the weekend with the chance for tropical weather.
Right now it still looks like rain will be the biggest issue with this system. Several inches of rain will be possible Friday through Sunday with minor coastal flooding. Development is not a guarantee but anything that forms would likely stay on the weak side.
As always stay with WGNO for the latest.
