    Storms should become more scattered into the evening hours. Any storm that forms will produce very heavy rain, dangerous lightning strikes, and gusty winds. Storm movement will be very slow and flash flooding is also possible. We'll see several more rounds of at least rain chances Saturday and Sunday. We should dry out behind a cool front early next week with some nice mid to late August weather.  Ken Johnson First Alert Chief Meteorologist
