More summer storms, some possibly severe

Scattered thunderstorms will be more likely on Thursday and then again Sunday, at which time a few isolated strong or severe storms can not be ruled out. We will keep thunderstorm chances through the afternoon, but that front will be responsible for knocking some of the humidity out of the air for early next week. This means not much relief during the day when we'll be heating up well into the 90s for highs.

Saturday will sport more spotty afternoon storms after a high of 90.

Today expect plenty of sunshine with highs warming into the mid 90s. Winds will stay under 10 miles per hour from the southwest.

We could continue to see showers and storms this evening, tapering off overnight. Lows will be in the upper 60s-mid 70s.

Outside of storms, Wednesday will be the hottest day of the week for many in the region with lots of highs through the foothills and Piedmont around 90 or so.

South winds will return Tuesday along with increasing low level moisture and increasing heat index numbers. At this point the storm chances next week don't look to be too impressive but certainly something we'll be watching.
