The First Warning Storm Team is tracking some of the hottest temperatures of the year to end your work week. We can also expect more showers and storms.

It will be very mild and muggy overnight with a lingering shower or storm. Lows in the mid and upper 70s.

We are in for a scorching day Friday! Highs near 95 degrees, but will feel like the low 100s, with the humidity. This could be one of our hottest days so far this year. A mix of sun and clouds with showers and storms possible in the afternoon. It will be breezy with winds out of the SW at 15-25 mph with higher gusts.

We finally have some dry storm-free days in your forecast! Saturday will be another hot day with highs in the low and mid 90s. Expect partly cloudy skies. Sunday will be around 10 degrees cooler, so will feel much better! Highs in the low and mid 80s.

We’ll heat things up again to start the work week.

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Chance for scattered showers and storms (20%). Mild and humid. Lows in the upper 70s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: A mix of sun and clouds. Hot and humid with some afternoon showers and storms possible (30%). Windy. Highs in the mid 90s. Winds: SW 10-20, with gusts up to 30 mph.
