Your lawn and flower beds probably will be even more parched after one more week of temperatures well into the 90s.
There’s only a slight chance that those plants will get a drink Sunday without help from you or a sprinkler system. In fact, that will be true most of the week.
The high will climb to near 97 degrees Sunday, with partly cloudy skies and a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. But it will feel even hotter with a heat index of 100 degrees or so, according to the National Weather Service.
That 30 percent chance of showers or thunderstorms will continue tonight, with the temperature dropping to about 74 degrees.
