Temperatures across the region are in the mid to upper 80s, with a few select areas in the northwest portion of the viewing area breaking into the low 90s.

An upper level trough continues to sit over the region, bringing enhanced rain chances to the forecast. Tomorrow will feature some scattered storms across the region, with a few popping up as early as 11am or noon. Most storms will be on the brief side, and they are not expected to reach severe limits.
