First Warning Forecast: Scattered Showers & Storms
Meteorologist Madeline Evans’ First Warning Forecast
More sunshine will try to break through for the second half of the week but heat and humidity will build. Afternoon scattered showers and storms will be possible Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday but rain will not be as widespread. Highs will warm into the upper 80s for the second half the work week. With the humidity, it will feel more like the mid 90s. We will stay partly to mostly cloudy with some breaks of sunshine. Wind will pick up for Wednesday from the southwest at 10-15 mph.
As of now rain chances will be lower for Sunday and Monday at a 30% chance but it is early so we will tweak that throughout this week.
Today: Mostly Cloudy, Showers/Storms (70%). Highs in the mid 80s. Winds: S 5-10
Tonight: Mostly Cloudy, Showers/Storms (40%). Lows in the mid 70s. Winds: SW 5-15
Tomorrow: Partly Sunny, Showers/Storms (40%), Breezy. Highs in the upper 80s. Winds: SW 10-15
