Sunny and hot with rain on the way

0

We’ve mainly stayed dry today with mostly sunny skies and temperatures around 90 degrees. It will remain relatively quiet overnight. Storms will move toward the area from the NW, but should begin to fizzle out before reaching us. However, isolated activity is possible overnight with lows in the low to mid 70s. Showers and storms will be scattered mainly through your Sunday afternoon and evening thanks to a trough of low pressure ahead of a cold front. Some storms may be on the strong to isolated severe side with gusty wind and heavy rain being the biggest concerns.  A cold front will move through Monday bringing a scattered and better chance for showers and storms, which will continue mainly through Tuesday morning. Temperatures Monday and Tuesday will settle into the mid to upper 80s. We’ll see more sunshine Wednesday with less muggy air and temperatures in the low to mid 80s. We’ll see more sunshine Thursday with temperatures in the mid 80s and hold on to the less muggy air. It will begin to feel muggier into the weekend with highs still in the mid 80s and isolated to scattered showers and storms.
