UPDATE: Heavy rain, lightning, and gusty winds possible

This coming weekend will remain hot and humid with highs near 90 and only a small chance for an isolated shower. The highest rain chance will be north and east of D/FW.

Here in the Lehigh Valley, the weather service says it will be cool today with temperatures generally in the low 70s. Heavy rain, gusty winds and frequent lightning are likely in some areas.

We have been upgraded to an enhanced risk for severe storms for areas in orange.

Rain chances will increase by midweek. Do think the best chance of rain (if we were to get any) were to stay south of I-70 closer to the frontal boundary.

The strong to severe storms will be moving through the mountains this afternoon into the evening hours.

Temps today will be well below average along the coast this afternoon with the numbers holding in the low to mid 60s. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s all week.

Thursday: Partly sunny with a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Showers and storms will gradually fade out tonight as the heating of the day disappears.

You'll wake up to a muggy Wednesday morning with more clouds and a few showers to start, so I suggest an umbrella before running out the door.

West Michigan will have a break overnight from rain showers, but will see them linger into early portions of Sunday morning for some.
