Strong to severe storms possible Wednesday and the heat continues.

Tonight: Increasing Clouds, Isolated Showers

Lows: 70s | Wind: W 5 m.p.h.

Highs: Near 90 | Wind: SW 4-8 m.p.h.

A warm front will approach the region from the west tonight, bringing with it the chance for a few isolated showers but mainly just added clouds overhead. Lows should fall into the 70s. Wednesday, a strong disturbance will track through the area helping to give a chance for showers and thunderstorms. Some of these storms may be strong to severe with damaging winds as the biggest threat. Temperatures will still be hot ahead of the associated cold front with highs around 90 degrees. If there is more sunshine, temperature may approach the mid 90s.

Behind this system Thursday, expect morning clouds followed by afternoon sunshine with slightly cooler temperatures in the upper 80s. Friday will see mostly sunny skies with highs back near 90 degrees. Looking ahead to the weekend, showers and storms will be back in the forecast on Saturday as a frontal system approaches from the northwest. Highs both days should approach the 90 degree mark.
