While there is a chance of a scattered shower or thunderstorm, probabilities only range from 10% to 30% at least through Sunday.

Thursday’s high temperature should be just short of 90, but Friday gets to the low 90s and Saturday to the mid-90s. Storm chances are 20% Thursday, 10% Friday, 20% Saturday and 30% Sunday. 

The heat index is likely to get into the upper 90s on July Fourth.

Overnight lows stay steady around 70 degrees.
