Thursday Night: Few evening showers; Heat Advisory in effect Friday

Weather

Tonight: A few spotty storms this evening, but most will stay dry. Lows in the mid 70s.

Friday: High pressure will keep us mostly dry, but a few storms may pop up. Rain chance is around 30%.
High temperatures will be in the mid 90s, but it will feel between 103-109 thanks to high humidity.

A Heat Advisory is in effect from 9 AM through 7 PM Friday. This means we are expecting prolonged high heat and humidity, which could lead to heat-related illnesses if you do not take proper precautions.

Weekend: High pressure will still be in the region, but it may be far enough to the west where we could see scattered afternoon storms develop. Rain chance is around 30-40%. Highs will be in the mid 90s, but it will feel like the 100s.

Next Week: Spotty summertime storms with highs in the low and mid 90s. Rain chances will come up a little bit Wednesday and Thursday.

Tracking the Tropics: Once a disturbance moves off the east coast and into the Atlantic, it could gradually develop, but there are no major concerns for tropical development expected over next 5 days.
