A few storms possible this weekend then get ready for some serious heat

An northwest to southeast flow aloft will help to drive storms from the Northern Plains into the Mid-South. The storms will be weakening as they move south and most of the area and the weekend will remain dry, but a few isolated to widely scattered showers and storms will still be possible.
