Good evening from It’s Tuesday, Aug. 20.

Today was National Radio Day. The first broadcast stations began airing programs in the 1920s. By 1938, four out of five homes had a radio.

Let’s wrap up your day with a check of the forecast.


About half of us saw some rain on Tuesday. Clouds helped with temperatures although we still managed officially to get to 95 degrees. Tonight will be warm and muggy with temperatures staying in the 80s. Overnight we drop to 78. Tomorrow's shower chances are only 20% with the afternoon sea breeze so not as active as today.
