FORECAST DISCUSSION:

Muggy overnight with lows mainly in the 70s. Hot and humid Thursday with only isolated showers and storms and highs around 90. Late Thursday night and Friday we have a good chance of rain and storms as an area of low pressure passes to our east. The track is uncertain at this time so the westward extend of the precipitation is still in question. At this writing the heaviest activity will be along and east of I 95. The heaviest showers and storms will occur Friday morning. 

The last time we had an 11-day streak of 90-degree days was July 11 to July 22 in 2019. The last time we had a 13 day stretch was back in 2016.
