The First Warning Storm Team is tracking more heat and more storms.

A few lingering showers and storms overnight, otherwise, partly cloudy. Areas of fog possible. Lows in the lower 70s.

It’s going to be another warm day Saturday with highs in the upper 80s under a mix of sun and clouds. Scattered showers and storms possible, mainly for the afternoon and evening. Even hotter for Sunday, with highs near 90. We do have a chance for showers and storms, but it’s a lower chance than Saturday. Expect a mix of sun and clouds. Both days will feel even hotter, thanks to the dewpoints. Heat index values will reach the mid 90s.

We’re tracking more showers and storms and very warm temperatures to start your work week. Highs reaching the 90 degree mark once again.
