It will be warmer, more humid, with an increased threat for scattered thunderstorms throughout the area on Sunday, Aug. 18.

The high temperature will be in the mid to upper 80s under partly sunny skies, but the humidity will make it feel warmer. (For a look at projected high temperatures from throughout the region on Sunday, check the first image above.)

Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible starting at around 3 p.m., with storms becoming more likely in the early evening Sunday.

The high temperature on Monday, Aug. 19 could hit or surpass the 90-degree mark on a mostly sunny day. Heat-index values (the combination of the humidity and the high temperature) will be between 95 and 100 degrees. A Heat Advisory is in effect until 8 p.m. Monday.

Expect pop-up showers and isolated storms from around 2 p.m. through around 11 p.m.
