— More heat and humidity this weekend with the hottest temperatures in nearly five years by Sunday. More showers and storms likely for next week, said meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs.
Today: A hot and humid afternoon with a few isolated storms possible. For those areas that develop storms, the potential for hail, damaging winds, frequent lightning and heavy rain is possible. Storms will be slow moving, so the potential for minor flooding exists. The rest of the area will be quite steamy with highs around 90 degrees and feeling like the lower to middle 90s under partly to mostly sunny skies. Drying out later tonight, but staying warm and muggy. Overnight lows around 70 degrees.
Sunday: Another hot and humid day with mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will rise into the lower 90s with a heat index approaching 100 degrees.
Monday: Partly cloudy, hot and humid again on Monday. Highs once again rise into the lower 90s with a heat index approaching 100 degrees. Chance for a pop-up shower or storm in the afternoon or evening.
Tuesday: Partly sunny with scattered showers and storms. A very warm and muggy day with temperatures well into the upper 80s.
Wednesday: A chance for showers and storms remains in the forecast with highs in the middle 80s.
