(WVUE) -

The area should expect less rain over the next few days. A few pop-up storms can't be ruled out each day. These storms would likely include some lightning and brief heavy rain where they occur.

Highs will range from the low to mid-90s to start the week with heat index values climbing to the triple digits.

Heat advisories may be necessary by the end of the week with highs projected to rise into the mid and upper 90s and humidity making it feel like the 105-110 range.

By the weekend, the heat bubble will break down allow for more storm coverage. That trend will continue into next week.

The Atlantic tropics remain quiet with no development expected in the next 5 days.
