You'll want to stay weather-aware through this evening.

We aren't out of the woods just yet. At least two more lines of strong to severe storms will push their way across the region tonight.

There's potential for widespread severe weather, but it's not a guarantee.

Plan on the risk for severe weather, just in case.

A silver lining might be that increased clouds could help keep temperatures capped.

Friday's temperature of 105.6 degrees fits into a recent pattern of increasing hot weather.

Heat waves such as the present one often do not end quietly.
