Thunderstorms are in the forecast for Thursday.

Western New York's eventful weather continues this month. 

Thunderstorms, along with the possibility of tornadoes, are forecast for Thursday.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook regarding Thursday's stormy weather for Erie, Niagara, Orleans, Genesee, Wyoming, Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties early Tuesday morning.

Forecasters said thunderstorms are expected Thursday and Thursday night, with possibly severe storms in the afternoon and evening.

"There is a slight risk that some of the storms will become severe with damaging winds the main threat, though isolated tornadoes are also possible," the weather service stated.

Also forecast is a marginal risk for excessive rainfall that brings with it the potential for localized flooding.

Wednesday's forecast, meanwhile, is an uneventful pleasant, sunny day with highs in the mid-80s. 

The weekend could mark the return of warmer temperatures that may continue into early next week. Last week, Western New York saw a record-setting heat wave.

While Friday's forecast includes the chance of more storms and temperatures in the mid-80s, heat and humidity are expected to follow.

Temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s are expected across the region from Saturday to Tuesday, with the heat index on Sunday and Monday reaching "well into the 90s," the weather service said.
