High heat will be with us as well as a chance for storms over the next couple of days.

Overnight: Storms Possible, Partly Cloudy & Muggy

Lows: Mid 70s | Wind: SW 5 m.p.h.

Tuesday: Hazy, Hot & Humid, PM Storms

An area of strong thunderstorms over the Ohio Valley will be watched very closely through the afternoon as it continues to head towards our area. Our team has been watching it and have determined that there is a chance for it to hold together and make it through the mountains which would allow it to get here by this evening. We will keep you posted through the day. Otherwise, expect mostly sunny skies, hot and humid conditions with highs in the low to mid 90s.

Tonight, a few storms will be possible with lows in the mid 70s. Partly cloudy skies can be expected tomorrow as well as very high heat with highs in the mid to upper 90s. Some areas may flirt with the 100 degree mark. Showers and storms will be possible in the afternoon hours.

Beyond that, a cold front will pass to the south of the region Wednesday through the weekend, bringing cooler and more comfortable air back into the region with highs in the 80s.
