Starting off the day mostly sunny, then a few clouds move in.  Some of those clouds could produce a quick rain shower or stray storm. Rain chances will be higher farther south and east.

On Sunday, showers and thunderstorms will increase in coverage. It will still be hot with a high near 90 and a higher heat index, but the rain will start to help cool us off. 

As a cold front passes through Monday, we will have the greatest chance of rain and thunderstorms. We'll get some relief from the heat this day, with the high dropping to the mid 80s.

Less humid and slightly cooler air will take over for Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs will be in the mid 80s.

Humidity starts to creep back in by Thursday and Friday, which also increase our temperatures a little bit to the upper 80-lower 90 range. A few pop up thunderstorms will be possible, but most everyone will see sunny skies.
