This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

The First Warning Storm Team is tracking showers/storms and milder weather in your forecast.

Some lingering isolated showers/storms overnight, otherwise partly cloudy and warm. Low temperatures will be in the upper 70s. The front will slowly push through our area Thursday and Friday. This will bring a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Any storms that develop could produce heavy rain and gusty winds. Localized flooding will be a concern. This rain will help to cool us down a bit. Expect highs to dip into the upper 80s to lower 90s on Thursday. Heading into Friday, most areas will fall to the upper 80s with a chance for showers and storms.

80s all weekend, with a few showers and storms possible.


Overnight: Partly Cloudy. Lingering shower or storm (20%). Lows in the upper 70s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Partly Sunny. Scattered Showers/Storms (40%). Highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
