Good Wednesday afternoon! As expected, we have had numerous storms scattered across the state today, as a weak disturbance and frontal boundary has moved in from the northwest. Unfortunately, since storms are scattered, rainfall amounts incredibly vary across the state. As the boundary continues to slide to the south on Thursday and Friday, we will notice a reduction in the number of showers and storms across the area.
Expect scattered storms to continue this evening and tonight, but it will not rain all evening or night. You may get an hour of rain at your house as storms pass by. Temperatures will drop into the middle 70s tonight, with some fog. The best chance of a few scattered storms on Thursday will be near and south of I-20, but understand it will not rain all day, and some of you will miss the rain.
Friday through the weekend will feature mostly sunny skies, with highs in the middle to upper 90s. Moisture levels will be a bit lower this weekend, so the heat won’t feel as bad as recent days. Either way, it will be hot… Expect lows to drop into the lower 70s at night Friday night through the weekend and into early next week. The risk of rain this weekend is only at 10%.
We’re watching a lone tropical wave in the far east Atlantic, but it has a harsh environment ahead of it, so it is unlikely it survives, even if it develops into a named storm.
It’s the dog days of summer, and we want to see how your dog is staying cool in the heat! Send us your pet pics and we will show them on WVUA at 5, 6 and 10pm starting Monday. Here’s how to send below…
