THURSDAY PM STORMS: Our eastern half is in a very low risk of severe weather through the early evening. On a scale of 1-to-5, we’re only at a 1. Storms begin to pop up in the early afternoon and continue to push through until around the dinner time hour. Highs reach the upper-80s with high humidity once again. The main concern with these storms is localized heavy rainfall and gusty winds. We get a break as the front slows, but it eventually pushes through and stalls, bringing in significant cloud cover overnight and a shower chance into tomorrow morning.
CLOUDY FRIDAY: The bulk of the rain chances end in the morning, but a lingering spot of drizzle can’t be ruled out into the early afternoon. Near-overcast skies remain throughout the bulk of the day. This keeps afternoon temperatures in the low-to-mid 70s with morning lows in the 60s. A few places may not even leave the upper-60s for highs if they see completely overcast skies all day long. A dreary finish to the work week!
STORMY SATURDAY START, REBOUND: Another round of storms comes in overnight into Saturday morning. This will be a weakening, more organized line. After it passes, we begin to clear in the mid-to-late morning. A surge of warm air pushes in from the south with a lifting front and allows temperatures to rise into the mid-80s by the afternoon with increasing humidity. Similar conditions stay Sunday with slightly warmer temperatures steadily rising into the beginning of next week.
