After a very pleasant start to the day with temperatures in the mid 60s, the air warmed into the lower 90s in the afternoon with a rich blue sky. The missing ingredient was the abundant "Savannah" humidity which is still kept at bay today. Humidity values during the afternoon was in the 30% range once again. However, all good things must come to pass and beginning tomorrow, we will start seeing an increase in the atmospheric moisture returning to the "sticky" values over the weekend and remaining high for most of next week. This will push the heat index back into the lower 100s. Along with the increase humidity will come the chance for the scattered afternoon and evening thundershowers. Other than "Cristobal" east of the mid US coast, the rest of the tropics remain relatively quiet.
