Scattered afternoon and evening storms will develop with the risks of localized heavy rain, frequent lightning and gusty winds. There will be similar weather patterns throughout the workweek with heat, humidity and daily chances of rain.

As for the tropics, a tropical wave is approaching the Windward Islands in the Caribbean and could develop some by the weekend and beyond while moving west to northwest. There should be no local impacts.

The First Alert Weather Team is keeping its eye on the southwest Atlantic for some possible long-range development into next week.
