We will be stuck in a very summer-like pattern, which means heat, humidity and afternoon storms. We’ll see a very similar day to end the work week. Temperatures will warm to the mid 80s with scattered afternoon showers and storms. Good news though, it won’t be a washout. We are looking at a 40 percent chance.

We’ll crank the heat up a bit over the weekend. Highs on Saturday will warm to the upper 80s. Expect a 60 percent chance showers and storms. This will be our best chance for wet weather. Conditions will improve on Sunday. It will be hotter with highs near 90, but only a 30 percent chance for an afternoon shower or storm.

Hot and humid to start the work week. Temperatures will soar to the low 90s with lower rain chances.
