Wednesday: A mild and muggy bus stop forecast as highs again soar to around 90 degrees and some scattered clouds develop during the day. It will be even more humid so the Heat Index will climb to the middle to upper 90s. Some passing showers and storms develop into the afternoon. Severe weather is not expected, though an isolated strong storm is possible.

Thursday: A mostly dry day, but another hot one with highs around 90 degrees and the Heat Index in the middle 90s. More sunshine for the afternoon so UV index stays high. We could see a pop-up downpour or storm with the heat of the day.
