Hot and sticky conditions will persist this afternoon with feels like temps peaking at around 95 degrees. We’ve also got a cold front approaching, so you should expect showers and storms from mid-afternoon through the early evening hours. These storms will be capable of producing frequent lightning, downpours, gusty winds, and even some hail, so do be on the lookout.
