WEATHER:

It is a quiet morning, so far, on FIRST ALERT Doppler radar. It’s steamy, though, with temperatures in the upper 70°s. An Air Quality Alert will be in effect Tuesday. It will be Code Orange, which means the air will be unhealthy for sensitive groups due to "particle pollution." Otherwise, expect a sun/cloud mix in the afternoon. It will be hot and humid, with a 40 percent to 50 percent coverage of rain and a high of 92°. Overnight, there will be a few lingering showers and a low in the mid/upper 70°s. Wednesday, it will be mostly cloudy and muggy, with a 50 percent coverage of rain and a high of 90°.
