Today's Weather: Tropical Cocktail

By Selena Fragassi in News on Jul 11, 2015 3:00PM

Our weather takes a trip today as tropical air moves in by the afternoon creating humid and hazy conditions that hang over us for most of the weekend. Temperatures start out in the 70s but increase to the low 80s as things really spice up.

The early morning sunshine will gradually fade as clouds intensify throughout the day, producing some spotty showers and thunderstorms by midday and the chance for heavy local rainfall later tonight. Be on the lookout for flash flooding and damaging winds, especially if you find yourself outside tonight.
