A few isolated storms are possible later Wednesday, with the possibility of more numerous storms on Thursday. Highs will be in the low to mid 90s Wednesday, and then in the upper 80s to around 90 Thursday and Friday. The threat for scattered storms will stick around Friday and Saturday.

Tropical Storm Elsa will move near Jamaica early Sunday and across Cuba later Sunday into Monday. Elsa is expected to weaken a bit as it approaches southwestern Florida on Monday night. As of now, a potential landfall looks to be in southwestern Florida, near or northwest of Tampa. More info can be found in the CBS 6 Interactive Tropical Tracker.

The leftover moisture as what's left of Elsa weakens may increase our rain chances Wednesday night into Thursday. Better chances for rain will occur closer to Norfolk and Virginia Beach.
