More Tolerable Humidity/Poll Results/New Poll

Invest 92L is still being watched but it is now over cold enough water that it can't become tropical. Still, I will watch it as it heads toward Portugal/Spain or even France. Could be a "fun" storm for them.

On Thursday, very tropical across the extreme southeast but some less humid air moving into the southern plains and much of the eastern US. Lots of highs in the 70s with the coolest spots being the northeast and much of the Great Lakes and California with highs in the 60s. 100+ for Phoenix with plenty of 90s in south Texas and the southwest. Look for thunderstorms in the southeast and over the Intermountain Region and Rockies.

Some heavy downpours today in exteme southeast Harris County today...more than 2 inches just south of Baytown. "Cold" front will arrive early Thursday and dry air will filter into the Houston area during the day. Much more pleasant on Friday as many kids enjoy their first full day of summer. Morning temps Friday will be in the middle 60s with highs reaching about 90. More humid...back to heat and humidity for the weekend but no rain expected. Make plans to hit the pool.
