High temperatures will be in the upper 80s with overnight lows in the lower 70s. Friday will also feature clouds and a slight chance of a stray shower in the afternoon. However, Friday night will be mostly dry. High temperatures will be in the lower 90s with a heat index around 100.

WEEKEND: Saturday will be partly cloudy with a small chance of an afternoon shower or storm. Rain chances will be higher on Sunday as a front approaches the area.

NEXT WEEK: The front will stall over the area on Monday and Tuesday, so showers will continue. The best chance for rain will be south of I-40. At this point, it looks like temperatures will drop slightly at the start of the week, but will quickly rise back up by the end of the week.
