Patchy fog is also possible across the region overnight and into early Sunday morning. Lows bottom out into the 60s tonight.

For Sunday, another chance of showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon. Again, some storms could contain gusty winds, some hail and very heavy rainfall.

The Storm Prediction Center is continuing to eye our region for some severe weather into Sunday as well. Damaging winds and heavy rain look to be the primary threats.

Hot and humid conditions return for another day – especially in areas east of the Blue Ridge where highs back in the lower 90s are likely. Slightly cooler in the mountains but still quite warm as highs top out into the 80s.

Next week looks relatively unsettled with off-and-on shower chances but a wedge sets up which will keep temperatures down significantly – especially compared to the hot conditions from the last several days.

On Monday and Tuesday, we’ll keep temperatures into the lower and middle 70s. Wednesday’s temps rise into the mid and upper 70s.

By Thursday, highs climb more into the 80s east of the Blue Ridge – 70s further west with similar temperatures leading into next weekend.

No day in the next seven is expected to be a washout. Generally, into next week, rain chances are generally in the 30% to 40% range.

Don’t forget, our hot temperatures will continue this weekend, so be sure you’re aware of what you have in your vehicle. It’s best to leave some much-needed items in the back seat. So, if you have a child or a pet in the vehicle with you, those items that you place in the back seat could be a reminder of your other precious family members.

Enjoy the weekend but be prepared to take shelter if showers or thunderstorms come into your area.

I’ll talk to you tonight on WFXR News First at Ten!
