Power of 5 meteorologist Trent Magill gives an update on developing afternoon storms, bringing damaging winds.

All of these storms will have heavy rain, making flash flooding the main concern. We can't forget about wind, though. The strongest storms will likely produce damaging wind gusts.

Storms fade this evening and should stay very limited until Sunday. That means the heat will dominate again. Keep doing what we're doing to get through this heat.

We're not looking at any relief from this heat and humidity until the end of next week.
