Daily chances for isolated to scattered storms continue through the week.

No organized severe weather is expected, yet any storm that develops may have heavy rainfall, frequent lightning, gusty winds and small hail.

Scattered thunderstorms are likely for the weekend, as a cold front moves into the region and stalls.

High temperatures remain hot, with lower 90s for Saturday and upper 80s for Sunday.

We are also closely watching the tropics, where an increase in tropical activity is possible.

A few disturbances are over the Atlantic Ocean now, that may develop and take on more tropical characteristics in the coming days.

Have a great week!
