 Weather: Summer heat, storms this week 

Brandon Roux:

We will combine the heat and humidity with storm chances tomorrow. The main threat or timing of the showers and storms is in the afternoon hours as we begin to heat up again. Morning lows will still be near 70 degrees and then afternoon highs again take aim at the mid or upper 80s, and that will depend on the timing of showers. The models show a decent slug of water riding over us from noon until about 6 p.m. tomorrow.
