Even with high pressure settled in, the amount of heat and humidity will be enough to spark a few thunderstorms, mainly across the Foothills and the immediate Blue Ridge. However any location has a chance at a storm today.

This heat will remain in place for most of the week. Please be careful if spending extended amounts of time outdoors during the next several afternoons. Also be aware of your condition while outdoors, the chance of heat exhaustion is elevated in this kind of weather pattern…
