Today's afternoon high of 92° matched the month's peak temperatures and represented our second straight day of 90° temperatures here in the Tri-State. In addition to the heat, the amount of moisture in the atmosphere was certainly more than most of us would have liked, I'm sure - it made that temperature of 92° feel more like 99° or 100° at times earlier this afternoon. The remainder of the evening will be a mild, but quiet one; expect temperatures to gradually dwindle from the upper 70s and low 80s around 10PM into the upper 60s and low 70s by daybreak Wednesday. Our morning low of 69° will set the stage for what may end up being our hottest afternoon in some time.
