There are no more severe thunderstorm warnings in the area, but there are several flash flood warnings following the overnight storms.

Early Thursday morning, the storms began to weaken.

As we head into the very early hours before sunrise, scattered storms will continue, but the severe threat should continue to diminish.

Scattered thunderstorms will linger into Thursday morning. A stray storm or two may develop during the afternoon, but any thunderstorm is expected to be quite isolated and the threat for severe weather is much lower. Thursday high temperatures will be back into the 80s.

Friday is partly cloudy and likely our hottest day of the next week. High temperatures will be in the 80s to around 90-degrees.

The holiday weekend looks warm and unsettled. Scattered thunderstorms are possible from Saturday through Memorial Day, with high temperatures in the 80s.

Tuesday is relatively dry and warm, followed by more thunderstorms Tuesday night into Wednesday next week.
