Despite the presence of high pressure over the Deep South, temperatures are hot enough and the seabreeze made the local atmosphere weak enough to trigger spotty thunderstorms, capable of causing periodic heavy rain and active lightning. Most of the storms will occur along and south of Interstate 10 for the early evening hours, and remain scattered in nature but locally strong. Temperatures will fall generally through the 80s tonight, cooler underneath areas of rain. Overnight, we'll watch to our north for remnant clusters of showers and storms ahead of a cold front, which may keep some spots of rain and thunder in the picture through the morning. Lows will be in the low to mid 70s. The frontal boundary will slow down tomorrow afternoon and amy regenerate showers and storms. Because of this, highs won't be as excessively hot, reaching the lower 90s in the afternoon.
