Low severe threat today, hot weekend on the way

LOW severe threat today, with flash flooding the main threat.

THUNDERSTORMS TODAY: Spotty showers start the morning and will continue off-and-on throughout the morning. The more showers and cloud cover we have this morning, the lower our severe threat becomes later in the afternoon. Regardless, we do have a low threat of severe weather this afternoon.

After a few thunderstorms late this afternoon, the main line pushes through after dark with high winds and heavy downpours.

On a scale of 1-to-5, we’re at a 1. Wind will be the main threat, will a low threat for hail and an isolated tornado. The bulk of the thunderstorm activity starts late in the afternoon and continues throughout the evening, even for a period of time after dark. Any leftover spotty showers wrap up by early Thursday.

DRYING OUT: We begin a warming trend Thursday. After those few morning showers, the humidity sticks around with temperatures topping out in the mid-to-upper 80s. We see a whole lot of sunshine for a good portion of the 7-Day Forecast, with temperatures hitting the low-90s to finish out the work week.

We stay dry with lots of sunshine, highs in the mid-90s this weekend. Our “feels-like” temperatures will approach 100-105 degrees on a hot, hazy and humid weekend.

HOT AND HUMID WEEKEND: We really crank up the humidity this weekend, with morning lows in the low-to-mid-70s. Afternoon temperatures make it to the mid-90s with “feels-like” temperatures between 100-105 both days. Mostly sunny skies dominate a hot, hazy, humid and dry weekend heading into July.

Have a great day!
