A few clouds will stick around overnight, leaving us a mostly clear sky. Winds will remain calm and we'll still be muggy and mild. Temperatures are expected to fall into the mid-70s.
We can expect less cloud cover on Tuesday as an area of high pressure continues to control East Texas. It'll still be hot and humid, with high temperatures topping out in the mid-90s. We'll be sure to keep you posted on any Heat Advisories being issued for the afternoon.
