There is a lot of tropical moisture streaming north.  It will feel uncomfortable for the next few days.  Father’s Day will be brighter and warmer and then our attention will turn to a slow moving cold front Monday afternoon-Tuesday morning.  While severe thunderstorms will be a possibility, heavy rain and flash flooding are a bigger threat.  Look for more on this later today and tomorrow.
