Get used to some occasionally muggy air over the next 36 to 48 hours. Dew points will reach the sticky 60s for some of us late Tuesday.

Wednesday will be more humid, especially late in the day before dew points drop behind a cool front for Thursday. That moisture will help create the unsettled weather into Wednesday.
