Still fairly dry air
The relatively comfortable air mass, by July standards, will remain in place through today.
Look for another day featuring abundant afternoon sunshine mixed with a few puffy cumulus clouds. With the northerly winds shifting southeasterly by afternoon, highs will nudge a touch higher than Wednesday, to near 90°. Humidity will remain markedly low by July standards.
Dew points will creep up during the overnight hours and on Friday you will once again wake up to "July" as lows keep in the lower 70s. There may be a few clouds and a spotty shower isn't impossible. Most rain will hold off until Friday though.
