The headline for the next couple of days will be the heat. Highs will reach the lower to even mid 90's with the heat index near 105 at times.
Only a few spotty storms are expected each day.
By the weekend there should be a little more moisture to work with so more showers and storms will be possible. The extra clouds should shave a couple of degrees off the thermometer.
No major changes next week with a few showers and storms each day. It will be seasonably hot and humid with highs in the lower 90's.
The tropics are quiet.
