A hot and humid week is in store for our area. That heat and humidity could lead to a couple or few thunderstorms each day. Be safe in the heat and always move indoors if you hear thunder.

This Week’s Hazards

Keep in mind that any summer storm, while isolated, can be locally strong to briefly severe. Damaging straight-line winds are the main threat.
