Rain chances will be highest for the area to start the day on Friday before moving to more widely scattered showers in the afternoon. The severe weather threat remains low, but a few heavy downpours will be possible around sunrise on Friday. The heat index will be elevated this weekend and approach the middle 90s most days.

FRIDAY: Scattered thunderstorms develop early and persist through the early afternoon. Localized heavier pockets of rain are possible along with some gusty winds. Later in the afternoon the chance for scattered storms gets lower. Staying warm and humid. High of 84.

SATURDAY: Warm and humid with a mixture of sun and clouds. The clouds increase late in the evening as a front approaches the area. A line of showers and storms are likely to roll through during the evening and overnight hours. This brings the possibility of severe weather and we will keep an eye on this. High of 88.

LONG RANGE: A few scattered storms stick around into Sunday morning before the clouds begin to clear. We see the warm and humidity stick around. The upper 80s are likely through the beginning of next week. The combination of the warmth and humidity are going to make it feel a little warmer than the actual temperatures. The heat index will be in the lower to middle 90s through the beginning of next week.
