storms. it's slowly lifting off to the north but it has shown some signs of weakening. still strong and very dangerous but that is what we're watching now. before the storms came around highs got to 90. otherwise, you're still conge around 90 degrees down in the sand hills. so heading into tonight we'll keep the storms in the forecast through 8:00, 9:00, 10:00 before they start to fade away. around and the humidity. as you head out to work or school it will be in the mid to low 70s. we have a lot of moisture. that's the way it's been for the last couple of months. now we have low pressure. the counter clockwise circulation. it's grabbing the moisture over the gulf. then it's interacting with the stationary front that's laying on top of us. that's creating the
