HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - It is feeling more like Summer across the mountains with warm temperatures and pop-up showers. This weather pattern will continue into Sunday, with a few stronger storms possible by Sunday night.

Tonight through Sunday night

Scattered showers will stick around into tonight. Will it rain all night? No. Will it rain everywhere? No. However, a few showers will be possible, so keep the rain gear nearby just to be safe. Low temperatures bottom out in the upper-50s and lower-60s under a partly to mostly cloudy sky.

Into Sunday, we stay partly cloudy and warm. High temperatures top out in the mid-80s. We could see a few showers during the afternoon hours, but the better chance for rain returns by the evening and overnight.
