Over the next seven days we’ll see chances for a widely scattered t-storm or two but no major organized rainfall is in the forecast.

The combination of warm temperatures and high humidity will push heat index values into the middle and upper 90s. We will have sunny skies with a slight chance for isolated t-storms mainly in the late afternoon and evening, each day.
