Storm chances and heat to finish out the weekend

Here in the Lehigh Valley, the weather service says it will be cool today with temperatures generally in the low 70s. Between about 3-8pm Wednesday we'll watch a cold front swinging through the area that could trigger strong and severe thunderstorms.

Increasing clouds along with increasing temperatures will also come increasing chances for rain and thunderstorms this afternoon, evening and overnight.

Tonight: Mostly clear to partly cloudy.

Wednesday some humidity creeps back in with highs in the middle 80s.

Today (Sunday): We could see some early fog and perhaps a passing shower during the morning, but most of us should be mainly dry into midafternoon. A few storms may meet severe criteria.

Wed: High: 83 Low: 67 Mostly cloudy; scattered showers & storms.

An line of showers moving through Oklahoma will approach the Red River by late morning. Otherwise, hot and humid with highs in the mid-90s and the Heat Index over 100°. A steady wind from the east socks us in with clouds as highs struggle to the upper 60s to near 70. The rain chance decreases to 30 percent tonight. There is a complex of showers and storms moving through IL and IN thi which will impact the Miami Valley this afternoon. Highs will be in the low 90s.

A few showers are possible Friday into Friday evening, but certainly not a washout.
