(WALA) - Heat Index values were near 105 degrees in places this afternoon as expected.

We also saw a scattered round of afternoon thunderstorms along Interstate10 and the coast. The increase in moisture will add to the humidity, but also will help get a good chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms going again on Friday.

Rain chances increase to 60% Friday. We have a level 2 slight risk for severe thunderstorms Friday, with wind and hail being the primary threats. We will continue to deal with scattered thunderstorms into Saturday, with lower chances Sunday. The heat wave breaks down some over the weekend, but ramps back up next week.

The tropics are completely quiet. Storm formation is not expected over the next five days.
