FOX 5's Sue Palka says a few widely scattered storms may develop as the heat peaks through the afternoon and evening. Any storms may drop heavy rain but severe storms aren't anticipated.

A Code Orange Air Quality Alert is also in effect today. That means the air quality may become unhealthy for sensitive groups with pre-existing lung conditions.

The heat wave continues all week as does the chance for more pop-up storms.

Hang in there! September is one week away!
