Tracking storms and hot temperatures for the holiday weekend

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with spotty storms possible, becoming more widespread overnight. Lows in the upper 60s to around 70.

TOMORROW: Showers and storms likely, becoming less widespread by late afternoon. Highs in the lower 80s.

EXTENDED: Spot showers have developed, but coverage of storms into tonight will continue to be spotty until early tomorrow morning as showers and storms become more widespread. This will be our best shot at seeing measurable rain over the weekend, with rain and storms generally between 6 a.m. and 3 p.m. Even with rain tapering off late in the day, we only manage to make the lower 80s on Saturday. Another round is expected to develop along the front on Saturday night, but the boundary is expected to lift north on Sunday, bringing hotter temperatures and limiting our storm chances. Severe weather chances are low tonight and tomorrow, but a few storms could produce locally gusty winds and small hail. A spot storm or two will be possible Sunday and Monday, but otherwise it's looking awfully hot with highs in the mid-90s on the fourth with heat indices between 101-104. We'll likely need a Weather Alert Day for heat on Tuesday and Wednesday as heat indices will get close or top 105. The hot pattern sticks around all of next week with limited relief from rain. If we do see any storms, it would likely be with a front influencing development between Wednesday and Friday as it stalls across the area.
