More showers will be possible early on Saturday, followed by additional thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will only make it into the mid- to upper 70s, reducing the threat for widespread severe storms. However, some late-day storms may contain heavy rain, so we’ll need to watch for localized flooding.
Sunday will be warmer, with temperatures in the 80s and just a few storms late in the day.
The workweek starts out in similar fashion, with warm temperatures and only a few storms late in the day.
The rest of next week looks mainly dry with only isolated storm chances and hotter temperatures back in the 90s.
