Highs today will reach the mid to upper 80s in some spots (still about 5-7 degrees warmer than normal) and will be in the upper 80s through the weekend.

The pattern remains active for scattered showers and storms through early next week but moisture from Tropical Storm Ida (which will likely make landfall along the US Gulf Coast over the weekend) may head our way early to mid-week before much cooler temperatures arrive.
