Another day of the heat before temperatures retreat into the 80’s for the rest of the week. Sunday brings a chance of some relief during the afternoon and evening as a chance of showers and storms exists. A few storms may become intense with hot and unsettled air about the area. High pressure will weaken on Sunday to allow a front to move about the region on Monday and Tuesday.
A few more storms on Monday have the potential to become severe as the front approaches. Sunday and Monday both include a marginal risk of severe weather according to the Storm Prediction Center with heavy rains and winds being the primary threat. In general, expect up to a half-inch of rain. Some will get close to an inch of rain, while only a few places will see over an inch if not two!

Storms are to tapper off on Tuesday with lesser humidity to come Wednesday. Overall the relief from the temperatures will be the talk of the town as we head over the next 7-days. Trends appear warmer as we head into the week after next, but that is still beyond 7-days out. Stay tuned!
