A few storms may turn severe this Sunday. A few pop-up showers and storms could contain damaging winds and drop as much as an inch of rain. Highs will be in the 80s Sunday, with more heat and humidity to follow us into the work week.

We will see a lull in the action around lunchtime, but things should spark back up mid to late afternoon and continue into the early evening hours. Showers and storms should be out of the region by 8 or 9 p.m. this evening, leading to a quiet night. Temperatures depart from average as we head into the work week.

Monday will be quiet, but it will be warm and humid after an early morning sprinkle. Highs will reach the upper 80s this week with little relief from the humidity in sight. While Monday remains quiet, we could see a few storms Tuesday.

Heat index values will peak around midweek, with a few indices reaching close to 100 degrees. Air temperatures reach into the 90s late this week before returning to normal next weekend.

Here is a look at your 7-day forecast:
