Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon and evening as heat and humidity build over the area. A few storms could be severe, with damaging wind gusts and large hail, but the severe storms should be few and far between. What showers and storms do develop will come to an end around midnight, with variably cloudy conditions overnight.
Variably cloudy conditions will continue into Saturday, with a better chance at sunshine in the afternoon. Sunday will bring more sun in all parts of the day. Rain chances will remain less than 20% all weekend, with highs reaching the mid 80s.
Thunderstorms will return to the area on Monday and Tuesday as a front approaches the area. Highs could reach the low 90s on Tuesday, before milder air sweeps back into the region for the rest of the week. We have received at total of 6.37″ of rain in June through today, and it will only take another 0.13″ to put is in the top 10 wettest Junes. The Monday/Tuesday opportunity could easily bring that amount.
Wednesday through Friday will be seasonally warm and mostly dry, with highs in the mid to upper 80s.
