Weather: Showers, storms to move west to east

Heat index values will make it feel like the middle to upper 90s. Showers and storms will fade again after dark with overnight lows in the upper 60s. Some of these storms could become strong to severe. Instead of widespread storms and a constant threat for flooding, the period from Thursday through the weekend will be a little more typical in terms of mid-summer weather. The rain will come in waves, and some areas could get hit by heavy storms repeatedly, while others remain outside the corridor of torrents. While enough wind shear may be present for an isolated tornado risk, the primary concern is going to be damaging straight-line winds. Won't be as wet as Saturday, but still looking at a 50/50 shot. These storms will bring damaging winds and large hail with them, and an isolated tornado can not be ruled out. Storms will fade after sundown, then we'll be left with only a slight chance of rain overnight, along with some clouds and lows in the upper 60s. A few showers and storms are possible.

Severe Weather Expected Tonight

It should set us up for comfortable 70s Friday and Saturday with a few showers Friday mainly on the east side and dry through the weekend. Highs for Sunday will be in the low 90s. The best chance of those scattered storms comes during the afternoon and early evening hours. Lows will be near 70 degrees Tuesday night.
