Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather remains hot today, with most spots reaching well into the 90s this afternoon. A few spotty storms are ongoing as of 3:30pm, and there will remain a chance of a passing storm or two through tonight. Expect temperatures to drop into the upper 70s after 10pm, and low 70s after midnight. Most spots remain dry overnight.

Thursday through the weekend, we can expect a few scattered showers and storms, with a bit of an increase in the number of scattered showers and storms by the weekend. Much like last weekend, this will not be an all weekend rain event. There may be rain for 1 hour in a single spot before the scattered storms move on. Just like any summer storm that develops in the afternoon heating process, expect a brief period of heavy rain and intense lightning. If you like the rain chance game, expect the risk of any one spot getting a passing downpour at 30% to 40% Thursday and 50% on Friday and Saturday.

The risk of storms will drop into the 30% range, pretty standard for late summer by Sunday through Wednesday of next week.

The tropics are quiet in the Atlantic Basin.
