Hot and humid with isolated storms.

First Alert Weather 5 p.m. 7/7

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) -Good Tuesday Evening Heartland. After another hot day we saw scattered showers and thunderstorms develop. A few of these storms will remain across the Heartland through the early evening hours. The main impacts from the storms will be gusty winds to 45MPH and frequent cloud to ground lightning. Outside the storms, temperatures are very warm and muggy. Reading this evening will slowly fall into the upper 70s.

Tomorrow looks to be a repeat of today with a few isolated storms but most areas remaining dry. Lows tonight will be in the lower 70s across the Heartland. Highs tomorrow will reach the lower 90s with the heat index around 100 degrees.

As we head towards the weekend we will see a slight change in the upper air pattern. This will allow for a few storms Friday through Sunday. Slightly drier air will move in early next week but it will still be hot.
