While only the southern half of the Midstate seeing rain today, the northern half will be mostly dry all day. Everyone will be a littler cooler than yesterday with highs in the low 80s, but it will still be humid, making it feel like the upper 80s outside today. A few of the isolated storms that develop today could produce some heavy rain and gusty wind, but the severe threat is extremely low. Localized flooding could be an issue for some today with these storms because of all the rain we had yesterday.
