Heat building into next week

Isolated afternoon shower chances continue to decrease but morning storm

We'll be watching for a few complexes of showers and thunderstorms to arrive in the area during the morning for the next few days. 

Your best chance for rain will be either right in the morning from any overnight complexes or late in the day from daytime heating.

The bigger story for the next week will be the heat with temperatures climbing into the upper 90s and a streak of 100º+ days for the River Valley.
