Scattered thunderstorms will develop each afternoon through the end of the week with a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the low 90s. It will feel like around 100 when you combine the effects of the high humidity. Storm chances will likely continue a few hours after sunset as storms attempt to build back toward the coast later in the evening.
High pressure in the upper atmosphere will strengthen this weekend and this will effectively mitigate widespread development and extensive coverage for Saturday and Sunday. Chances will go down to around 30% for Saturday and Sunday afternoon and perhaps we'll see an uptick in temperatures by a couple of degrees both afternoons into the low to mid 90s inland.
Next week will remain hot and humid with scattered storm chances increasing a bit as the high pressure weakens allowing for a few more storms to pop up. There will still be plenty of opportunities for outdoor plans as lots of sunshine is expected in between through the 4th of July.
