Strong High pressure will continue to give us well above normal high temperatures with afternoon readings Tuesday near 101.  There is a Heat Advisory for the entire CSRA as heat index values will be around 105-110.  It’s looking like there could be some afternoon relief in the form of showers and thunderstorms as a weak disturbance will move into SC/GA from the north.  The Storm Prediction Center has us under a Marginal Risk of severe weather for tomorrow afternoon.  The biggest threat would be brief heavy rain, gusty winds and small hail.  This is something we’ll be tracking…along with the heat
