Humidity rolls in overnight

It was a beautiful day and now our weather turns more humid. A southerly flow of tropical air arrives overnight and two points will be in the 60s and even 70s for Thursday and Friday. Along with the high humidity we're going to add in a chance for a couple of showers or even a thunderstorm in some towns. However in a drought pattern showers are not going to be widespread many of you will miss them and continue to dry out the landscape.

You can expect sunshine and low humidity with temperatures in the 80s perfect for the beach the pool golf or any other summer activity.
