The National Weather Service is predicting a high of 92 degrees on Saturday with a 30 percent chance of severe thunderstorms.

NWS meteorologist Cory Behnke said the day will be breezy with high humidity. The storms, he said, could bring damaging winds at 60 mph along with large hail.

“We are not expecting widespread thunderstorms,” Behnke said. “Scattered thunderstorm development will be possible at any part of the day.”

Sunday will be cooler and less humid with temperatures in the 70s and sunny skies, Behnke said.

Meanwhile, Friday’s high temperatures will be around 80 degrees with partly cloudy skies. There is a 30 percent chance of thunderstorms tonight with a low of 68 degrees.
