Expect patchy fog in the morning, before 8 a.m., then it’s mostly sunny again with a high of 95 and heat index values around 100 degrees. The low will be 71.

Friday brings a 30 percent chance of showers and storms, mainly in the late afternoon, with a high of 94 and partly sunny skies. Here’s where things start to chance. The chance of rain and storms Friday night is 60 percent, with a low of 68.

Showers and storms are likely Saturday, with a 70 percent chance of rain, and a high of just 84. The chance of rain goes down to 60 percent on Saturday night, with a cool low of 64.

Monday will be a refreshing change, with mostly sunny skies and a high of 83. Monday night’s low will be 65.

The usual 30 percent chance of rain comes back Tuesday, but it will be mostly sunny with a high of 88.
