The combination of temperatures in the lower 90s and high humidity values this afternoon will produce heat indices in the upper 90s for many locations. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon and evening, especially for areas along and north of I-95. A cold front is expected to move through the region late Tuesday bringing much more widespread showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening hours. These storms may be strong to severe and produce heavy rainfall. Stay cool out there!
