Weekend storms possible as summer-like temperatures return

The clouds are back and warming temperatures up with the humidity back today. It will usher in a summer-like feel to the weekend and also a chance for some possible storms.

FOX 7 Austin meteorologist Zack Shields says even though we will see less sun today, highs are still heading for the 80s with a slightly stronger wind. However, with the extra moisture in the air, the fire danger will not be an issue. 

Will the next storm event occur this weekend? There is a chance as a slow-moving cold front moves into the area and interacts with a Summer-like air mass. Computer weather models are hinting at isolated strong to severe storms starting Saturday evening. The Storm Prediction Center has the area under a marginal risk already.
