If any storms form, there is a chance for them to become strong to severe.

We are tracking a cold front for Monday, which will bring better chances for some showers and storms. It will still be hot with highs in the lower 90s.

Some relief finally! Tuesday expect highs in the mid and upper 80s under partly cloudy skies. Looks like we’ll continue to trend in the 80s through Friday.
