Another hot one today; real-feel temperatures near 100

Another hot one on tap for today.  Southerly flow around high pressure off the southeast coast will keep a muggy, tropical air mass over the region.  Wouldn't be surprised at all if a few locations east of the Blue Ridge see highs break 100.  A few scattered thunderstorms will develop across the Appalachians this afternoon and evening.  It'll remain active through the start of the week as a cold front slowly crawls through the area.  This front will finally make it far enough south to dry things out (and cool things down a little) by the middle part of the week.
2pm temperatures
Shenandoah Valley Forecast
Today: Partly cloudy with a few scattered thunderstorms forming in the mountains this afternoon. Best shot for one to cross the Valley will be between 1pm-8pm.  Otherwise, hot and very humid with highs in the low to mid 90s.  It'll feel even hotter with heat index values pushing 100.

Monday: Cold front approaches the area.  Another shot for afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Highs in the low 90s.

Tuesday: Front continues its push through leading to additional chances for showers and storms.  Highs in the upper 80s.

Wednesday/Thursday: Front should be over the Carolinas keeping shower activity to our south.  Slightly cooler and not as humid.  Highs in the mid 80s.
