High pressure in the upper levels of the atmosphere remains in place through Friday, keeping the rain at bay and the warmth around. High temperatures will be in the mid-90s today – – upper-90s on Friday. Factor in the humidity, heat index values will approach 105 degrees in some areas.

By Saturday, a weak cool front will back into the area from the NE, increasing storm chances. Right now, I’m calling for a 40% on Saturday….30% chance on Sunday. Strong wind will be the main threats as well as dangerous cloud to ground lightning. High temperatures will be a bit cooler, with highs in the lower 90s. Slight storm chances will continue into the first of NEXT week.
