The weekend is here. Highs will remain in the upper 80s and lower 90s. We could see a pop-up storm Saturday but chances are better by late Sunday afternoon for a few isolated strong thunderstorms with heavy rain, significant lightning and strong gusty winds. Just keep any eye out for lightning at your outdoor events. Storm chances will also be around for the early morning hours on Monday.
The heat will lock in across the Southeast next week. Afternoon highs will be in the lower to middle 90s beginning Tuesday and lasting into Memorial Day weekend. A strong area of high pressure will keep rain chances at a minimum.
