DETAILED FORECAST

A few isolated pop-up showers or storms are possible this afternoon and early evening, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist McCall Vrydaghs said. A better chance for storms arrives after sunset.

Tonight: Partly cloudy skies are in the forecast with warm and muggy conditions. A pop-up storm is possible. Any storm that does develop could be strong producing locally heavy rain, frequent lightning and gusty winds. However storms should remain quite isolated early. Lows will hold in the lower 70s.

Friday: A mix of sun and clouds is expected with more thunderstorms developing late in the day as a cold front moves into the Miami Valley. Some of these storms could become strong or severe and produce damaging winds. Some hail and heavy rain will also be possible. Temperatures will reach into the upper 80s. Storms will exit by Friday night.

Saturday: Skies will be partly sunny. It will be breezy and not as hot or muggy. Temperatures will top out in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.

Sunday: Skies will be mostly sunny with highs around 80 degrees.

Monday: Mostly sunny skies will continue as a warm-up gets underway. Highs will rebound into the middle 80s.

Tuesday: Partly cloudy skies are expected with warm and humid air returning. There will be the chance for an isolated shower or storm, mainly during the afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 80s.
