Happy Sunday,e everyone. We've had a few showers and storms develop across our northeastern counties this afternoon. As we head into the evening, I think storms may spread south and west. We will hold on to about a 40 percent chance for rain across the entire area through the evening.

A Heat Advisory is still in effect until 7pm, but if you end up under one of the storms this afternoon, that should lower the temperature considerably. If you have to work outside in the heat, make sure you take plenty of breaks, drink plenty of water, and check on folks who don't have AC.

Tomorrow, it will be in the low 90s again with another chance for here-and-there showers and storms. The rain chance tomorrow is around 30 percent. 

Better chances for rain arrive on Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs will be around 90 with a 50 percent chance for showers and storms. Severe weather isn't anticipated, but a stray storm may pulse severe with heavy rain and wind gusting to 60mph. The tornado threat is almost zero.

Rain chances decrease as we head toward the weekend with temperatures rebounding into the low 90s.
