REST OF FRIDAY: Expect partly sunny skies with temperatures soaring into the upper 80s and lower 90s; heat indices will run near 100°. Popcorn showers and storms may lead to another complex diving from northwest to southeast across the state later today. Main threats will come from wind and hail; localized flooding is a possibility too. Storms will subside later this evening with lows in the 70s.
WEEKEND THOUGHTS: Post-Friday storminess, rain chances for Saturday and Sunday look to be a bit less. We'll keep the mention of a few isolated storms in the forecast amid partly to variably cloudy skies. Temperatures making a run for the lower 90s with heat indices near 100° again.
INTO NEXT WEEK: A frontal boundary will bring another uptick in rain chances through Monday; along with a very slight reprieve in the heat and humidity; though it will be short-lived. Expect highs each day to run generally near 90, lows in the 70s with a chance for hit and miss variety storms each afternoon.
