SLIGHT RISK of severe storms this afternoon containing potential for damaging winds and large hail
Look for a mainly cloudy sky this morning along with a few widely scattered light rain showers especially east of I-65.
STORMS ROLL BACK IN…
A cloudy sky and scattered showers kept temperatures in check on Thursday. As a cold front moves closer to the region today, we’ll see more clouds along with better rain chances. Any sun that breaks through could help trigger scattered thunderstorms this afternoon. While widespread severe weather is not anticipated, a few storms could reach severe limits, with hail and locally damaging winds being the primary threats (a SLIGHT RISK of severe weather is in place through this evening). Highs will top out in the mid 80s today. Scattered thunderstorms remain possible tonight with warm and humid lows in the 60s.
A frontal boundary close by means a continued chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms Saturday. It looks like we’ll get by Sunday with only a few isolated thunderstorms. When it’s not raining, you can expect a mix of sun and clouds both days with warm and humid highs in the mid to upper 80s.
COOLDOWN FOR NEXT WEEK…
The weather pattern remains unsettled through the early part of next week. We’ll stand a better chance for more widespread showers and thunderstorms late Monday into Monday night as a cold front eases through. The system will be slow to move away, so small chances for rain continue into Wednesday before everyone finally dries out Thursday. It will turn much cooler and less humid late in the period, with highs dropping into the 70s and lows falling into the 50s.
