When you step outside today, expect more of the same -- humid air, a chance of scattered storms, and temperatures in the mid-to-upper 80s.
Temperatures were already at 72 degrees by 8 a.m., and could hit 87 by mid-afternoon. The city' "cooling" centers in Greenfield, Homewood, Sheraden and the South Side market house will be open today.
The chance of rain and thunderstorms will increase as the day rolls on, with a 50 percent chance of scattered rain and pop-up storms after lunchtime, with the greatest chance of rain west of the city.
This evening, the relative humidity could hit 83 percent -- extremely oppressive. The chance of storms should ease as the evening gets cooler, meaning tonight's Taylor Swift concert at Heinz Field shouldn't be a total washout.
Forecasters are expecting this weather cycle to continue through next week, until Friday.neigh_city - breaking - region
