While storm pulse up at times, it is not rainy all weekend.

This weekend stays steamy, with highs around 90 degrees. Saturday morning starts with the spotty rain and storms, then scattered storms develop Saturday afternoon and evening. Then storms are scattered again Sunday afternoon to evening.

Actually, that scattered afternoon to evening development continues Monday, but in your First Alert 8-Day Planner, we’re monitoring bands of rain and storms that move in Tuesday afternoon and continue at times on through Wednesday night. This pushes the heat back to low to mid 80s. We’re also looking at clearing and a drier pattern at the end of your 8-day planner.
