    Even though temperatures will peak in the 80s for much of the balance of the week, the daily risk of heavy, drenching thunderstorms will continue.

    Humidity levels will remain high into the weekend.

    Typical temperatures for this time of year are closer to the 85 F mark.

    Sunny skies will be interrupted by thunderstorms in the afternoon. Night skies will be mostly cloudy and have the chance of producing thunderstorms as well.

    Storms during the middle part of the week can be especially heavy, gusty and disruptive.

    Those with any outdoor plans should stay on alert throughout the afternoons and evenings. At the first sign of thunder or lightning, seek indoor shelter.
