***A Heat Advisory is in effect until 8 PM today for all of Eastern Virginia and Northeastern North Carolina. Most areas will see highs in the upper 90s with heat index values from 105 to 110.***

More hot, humid weather ahead, but a few storms could cool us down….We’ve got more dangerous heat in the forecast, but some of us might get a little relief from some cooling thunderstorms this week.

As we move through our Monday evening, it’s going to be warm and muggy for a lot of us. Low temperatures will fall into the upper 70s under mostly clear skies. Most areas should be dry tonight. But a stray shower or storm could develop for areas along the Eastern Shore and Northern Neck. We’ll keep an eye on it.

On Tuesday, we’ll see highs in the mid 90s. Still, with the humidity, it will feel like the triple digits. By midweek, we’re expecting highs to dip into the lower 90s. Why you ask? Well, a cold front will approach the area and eventually stall over the Mid-Atlantic for the week, giving way to unsettled conditions and a chance of scattered showers and storms. Otherwise, we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds. We’ll track the potential for storms in the weather center for you throughout the week.

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Lows in the upper 70s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: Partly Cloudy. Scattered Showers/Storms (30%). Highs in the mid 90s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.

Wednesday: Partly Cloudy. Scattered Shower/Storms (30%). Highs in the lower 90s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
