Thunderstorms possible this afternoon

Like the past few afternoons, I expect some of you will have to deal with storms. Most of the storms will be scattered in nature, but they may be strong. The main severe threat will be in the form of straight-line winds. Large hail is also possible, but won't be big of a threat as the winds. Storms may linger in to the evening hours. Highs will reach the lower to middle 90s this afternoon.

Overall we'll undergo a pattern change next week. Our rain chances will increase, while our day time highs will be on the decrease. By Wednesday, I expect highs in the upper 80s. The better rain chances will just about ensure that those of you who have not picked up rain lately will actually get some.
