After heavy thunderstorms last night, another round of showers and storms will be possible today with the best chance this afternoon. Otherwise, expect partly sunny skies with highs in the mid 80s. Tonight, a few lingering showers can be expected with lows in the 60s.

Saturday, the heat and humidity will be back in full with highs around the 90 degree mark and dew points in the mid to upper 60s. A few storms will be possible late in the day. Sunday will feature a slightly better chance for thunderstorms in the afternoon with highs still around the 90 degree mark.

Looking ahead to next week, the heat doesn’t appear like it will go anywhere with highs in the mid 90s towards midweek.
