We are back with the high heat today. Temperatures will reach the upper 90s, and with the humidity feel close to 105ºF. That makes it dangerous for outdoor activities, unless you are by water for natural cooling.
A Hurricane Watch has been issued for the west coast of Florida. Tropical Storm Elsa is expected to track inland tonight and then off the coast close to Ocean City Thursday night. More on that below.
