It’s a hot and humid Sunday with afternoon thunderstorm chances.

 

HOT & HUMID SUNDAY

Warm and steamy air stays in place through the rest of the weekend, as do the isolated thunderstorm chances. A couple spotty storms dissipate as the evening progresses, with only a stray shower possible through the rest of the night. It’s a warm and steamy night, with lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Our next storm system, including a cold front, edges closer Sunday, increasing the heat. Highs are near 90 degrees under partly sunny skies. During the afternoon, there’s the chance for showers and thunderstorms, especially during mid to late afternoon. The best chance will be to the west and northwest. An isolated strong or severe thunderstorm is not out of the question. It remains unsettled Sunday night.

 

 

SEVERE T’STORMS POSSIBLE

A cold front helps fuel the possibility of severe weather on Monday.

The cold front slows down Monday, continuing our region’s shower and thunderstorm chances. It’s still very warm and humid, with highs in the middle to upper 80s. The heat and moisture will leave the atmosphere ripe enough for severe thunderstorms to form. Damaging winds, hail, and even a small tornado chance are likely, in addition to locally heavy downpours. A more potent cold front swings through Tuesday, renewing the shower and thunderstorm chance. A couple storms could be on the strong to severe side again.

 

 

MIDWEEK COOL DOWN

Behind the cold front, a much cooler and less humid air mass plows into the region. Highs are contained to the 70s on Wednesday under a mixture of sunshine and clouds. Temperatures remain below average Thursday. The sunshine also continues. Friday we warm into the lower 80s area wide under abundant sunshine. By Saturday, the warmth and humidity returns along with a slight thunderstorm chance.

 

 

 

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
