The moist southeast flow continues today so with no big changes in the atmosphere there is no reason to expect a different forecast.  We re warming now into the low 90s with heat index values between 100-110.  We will top out near 92 this afternoon. 

Skies will turn partly sunny this morning then showers and storm will start to pop after 1-2pm.  The strongest storms will move WNW across the area between 4-7pm tonight.  

Gusty winds, frequent lightning and heavy rains are all possible and the timing puts these storms in the middle of the evening commute.

The pattern is very similar through the weekend with afternoon showers and storm chances 40-50% and highs in the low 90s.

Wednesday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 2 p.m. Partly sunny, with a high near 92. Heat index values as high as 99. Calm wind becoming east 5 to 8 mph in the morning. Chance of precipitation is 60%.

Thursday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 2 p.m. Partly sunny, with a high near 91. East wind 3 to 7 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%.

Friday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms. Mostly sunny, with a high near 93. Calm wind. Chance of precipitation is 30%.

Saturday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms. Mostly sunny, with a high near 92. Southeast wind around 5 mph becoming light and variable in the morning. Chance of precipitation is 40%.

Sunday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms. Mostly sunny, with a high near 92. Chance of precipitation is 40%.
