Good Friday morning, it is June 15.

First Alert Forecast

A few strong thunderstorms are possible in the today as a surge of very warm, humid air moves back into the region from the west. 

Otherwise, we are going to be heating up again (and getting very humid) as we get into the upcoming weekend. 

High pressure aloft will eventually put a lid on most storms,  but afternoon highs will likely be in the mid-90s with heat indices (feels like temps) at or above 100.
