We've got a muggy and mostly dry night ahead as this afternoon's storms- fueled by a very humid and warm atmosphere- have dissipated with the loss of daytime heating. Temperatures will only drop into the upper-60's by sunrise thanks to all this moisture. Some fog or low clouds may develop as well.
By tomorrow afternoon, skies will likely be mostly sunny with temperatures approaching 90 degrees. However, dewpoint values in the 70's will mean heat index values in the mid-90's. Isolated thunderstorms will be possible due to the moisture and heat in place, but not severe.
Tuesday will be similar to Monday, but more widespread showers and storms are expected Wednesday and Thursday as we see more of an influence form the storm-system ejecting out of the Plains. Some strong thunderstorms will be possible, but we are not anticipating anything like what has been occurring in Oklahoma and Kansas this weekend.

THURSDAY: Partly to mostly cloudy, a few showers and storms possible. High: 84. Rain: 30%.
