As with much of this week, today has been inundated with rain showers and storms driven by daytime heating. As we head through the overnight hours, expect those showers and storms to quickly taper off. Some showers could linger into the morning hours, but for the most part all of us should remain dry overnight.

Sunday will be much like today, in that the first part of the day will be dry and warm, as the afternoon dawns, daytime heating will drive storm development. As with this evening, tomorrow evening should be the same, but with storms not as numerous in coverage and quickly tapering off during the evening hours.

Rain chances will stay with us through the rest of the weekend and by Monday and Tuesday the chances are slim. Any rain showers and storms that develop next week will be thanks to daytime heating and lift. As a ridge begins to overtake our area, we will stay mostly dry other than any daytime storms.

By next week, temperatures should return to the low 90s area wide and by the close of the week everyone will be sitting in the lower 90s.

On another note, tomorrow is also the start of hurricane season and meteorological summer. Do make sure you are prepared for a tropical system. A full list of names and the latest tropical conditions can be found by clicking the link attached to this article. The first named storm will be "Arthur."
