Afternoon update: Hot and stormy weather continues through the weekend


The recent weather is certainly on schedule, but that doesn’t make it any less uncomfortable. The heat and humidity continue, as do the daily risks of thunderstorms at the end of the day. As in recent days, any storms that develop will be scattered in nature, but will likely bring heavy downpours and localized flooding.
