A bit of extra energy will produce a few more storms

Most of the day will be at least partly sunny and temperatures will again be warm. Expect the high temperatures to reach into the upper 80's at the beaches and low 90's across the coastal mainland. Well inland the temperatures to reach the mid 90's and heat indexes between 100 and 105.

A bit of upper energy will move over the southern tip of the state today and bring better chances of showers and thunderstorms with timing similar to the last few days.

The Hurricane Center continues to watch a cluster of storms out in the Atlantic that models suggest will develop by the weekend and stay in the Atlantic. Depending on it's proximity and intensity it could bring enhanced rain chances early next week.
