remain possible through about 7 or 8 o'clock. as previously mentioned, it is more likely that little or no rain will be observed. overnight clouds will diminish in coverage leading to partly to mostly clear skies. temperatures will gradually decline into the lower 70s overnight. there will be some isolated patches of fog once again tomorrow morning, but don't expect widespread visibility issues for your wednesday morning commute. tomorrow, like today, there appears to be a very limited chance for a rogue shower or storm by the late-afternoon hours as moisture and heat continue to slowly ooze in from the southwest throughout the course of the day. instead, we'll see more sunshine and hotter temperatures. and of course, the humidity will accompany that heat. temperatures are anticipated to climb from the lower and mid-70s to the mid- 90s in the afternoon. heat index values should reach into the lower 100s in most areas. one or two counties could be placed under a heat advisory across the southern tier of our area, but either way, it will be the hottest and most humid day of the week with the lowest chance of shower or storms to provide any relief. rain chances will begin to increase again as we head into thursday. otherwise, we'll see partly cloudy skies. temperatures still manage to reach the lower 90s with heat index values into the upper 90s and near 100. rain chances will increase to around 30 percent heading into thursday evening. and those percentages likely increase into friday. scattered showers and storms are likely friday afternoon, some of which could linger into the evening. of
