Isolated stronger to severe storms are possible, with damaging winds the main threat. The high will be around 86 degrees, and continuing to feel 6 degrees warmer due to high humidity.
We continue with what is more of an on and off rain and storm pattern for the next several days. Flooding is an ongoing concern, with locally heavy rainfall approaching 2 to 3 inches in spots will lead to runoff issues and rising creeks.
