Austin weather: Fewer storms and more heat

Fewer storms and more heat will be the name of the game not only today, but for the next several days. 

Temperatures will reach the hottest levels of the year thus far. 

Highs in the mid to upper 90s that could help spark one or two storms by mid-afternoon.

Before the dome of high pressure takes over in the coming weeks, we may see a few more storms clip the area late on Saturday.

We will talk much more about the weekend storm threat and hot spell coming this way next week on FOX 7 Good Day Austin.
