Expect another warm day today! Be sure to take breaks from the heat in cool shelter if spending extended amounts of time outdoors. Also check in on the elderly, children and pets - prolonged heat impacts them more quickly.

In addition, scattered storms will be possible mainly this afternoon into early evening. More miss than hit though. Any stronger storm could produce locally heavy rain and small hail.
