The mugginess continues on your Wednesday. We started this morning with lows just a few degrees below 70° with mostly sunny skies. This afternoon highs will get back close to 90° with scattered storms, especially east of Jefferson and Thomas counties. We're not facing an overwhelming severe threat but a few storms may pack an extra punch of wind, small hail, heavy rain and lightning. Thursday, the same cold front that sparked numerous severe storms in the middle of the country earlier this week will move through. That said, it will be in a much weakened state but still strong enough to give us scattered thunderstorms Thursday afternoon. The front will move east through Friday with quick clearing behind it. Friday afternoon will still be near 90° but there will be a noticeable drop in humidity. High pressure at the surface and in the upper levels of the atmosphere will work together to supply plenty of heat and dry conditions for the entire Memorial Day weekend. Highs will be near 90° with lows near 60° Saturday through Monday.

Be safe and have a great Wednesday!
