Get ready for an even hotter and more humid day, but today storm chances make a comeback. Not everyone will get a storm this afternoon or evening, but those that do could be dealing with severe weather. Heavy rain, frequent lightning and thunder, and damaging wind gusts are all possible, so stay weather alert. The area is currently under the Marginal risk category per the Storm Prediction Center.
Everyone will deal with the excessive heat and humidity. Feels like temperatures this afternoon will peak around 100 degrees, so be careful outdoors by taking breaks in the AC or shade and staying plenty hydrated.
This weekend will remain unsettled, but it won't be a washout. Temperatures will also be falling through the weekend. Highs Saturday will top out in the upper 80s with the low 80s for Sunday. Humidity levels will remain quite high both days. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible both days, so keep your StormWatch7 app handy to track the wet weather on the go.
