The storms from earlier today are gradually weakening as they move south toward coastal regions this evening, but they will still be capable of triggering locally strong wind gusts and frequent lightning, even past sunset. Temperatures will depend on rain and cloud coverage, but storms will cause quick cooling into the 70s, where lows will end up overnight. Wednesday turns hot again with highs in the mid 90s and feels-like readings over 105° in the afternoon. Another round of developing rain and strong thunderstorms is anticipated with severe gusts and heavy rain. Hotter-than-average temperatures will continue into the weekend with daily scattered shower and storm chances, with lesser concern for broader severe weather.
