Downright hot conditions will continue for the rest of the week. Temperatures will run several degrees above normal and flirt with record highs in the low to mid 90s. It will feel like the triple digits during the afternoon thanks to the humidity. Morning lows will be in the mid 70s. The hottest temperatures will come at the end of the week and over the weekend.
A stray storm is possible today, but beyond that, we look dry for the rest of the work week. A cold front will approach the area over the weekend but odds are it won't quite reach us. It could be close enough to fire off a few storms by Sunday, though.
