Good Thursday afternoon! Our local weather has turned out hot and humid again, with a few scattered afternoon storms. This is a very typical mid July day, with air temperatures close to average. Heat index is elevated, with a feels like temperature nearing 102. Fortunately, scattered storms will cool some spots off this afternoon. Temperatures tonight will dip into the lower 70s.

Friday will feature very similar conditions as today. Expect highs in the low 90s, with a heat index over 100. Scattered storms will develop in spots, but not everyone will get rain. The risk of rain for any one spot is at 40%.

A weak surface front will slip into the area from the northwest over the weekend, and this will help to increase the number of scattered storms on Saturday and Sunday. I do not expect everyone to get rain, but the risk of any one spot getting rained on is at 50%. The best chance of a storm will happen during the afternoon and evening, but I can’t rule out a morning or overnight storm as well.

Rain chances will decrease next week, with highs approaching the mid 90s.
