Heat to build in the coming days with daily chances for showers & t-storms

Severe weather potential come later Sunday into Sunday night

The passage of a weak boundary responsible for our sprinkles will be followed by some ripples of energy coming out of the west in the coming days resulting in isolated to widely scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Timing this activity out will be the biggest challenge given no major boundaries around to produce any widespread coverage.

Expect the first chance to arrive later tonight and before the predawn hours Friday with the next possibly arriving later in the day.  Coverage still appears isolated with these two waves.

Next comes around the predawn hours on Saturday before the rest of the day becomes brighter and quite humid with highs approaching 90.

Chances will increase a bit later Sunday before the coverage heading into the new week becomes isolated once again.

After seeing highs in the upper 80s on Sunday comes the hottest of the air Monday through Wednesday with highs in the lower 90s and heat indices just over 100 degrees!
