For today, look for scattered t-storms. Some of these storms will have the potential to become severe, with damaging winds and hail the main threat. The tornado threat is extremely low. You can already see one line of storms building to our north if you look toward Kentucky. They’re a beautiful site to see! Also, one glance at the radar and you know we’ve got a stormy day ahead. Highs should easily reach the low 80s before storms arrive. The first line of storms should be here by 11:00am. But then we have more storms out west that will be moving in this afternoon.
On Friday, we’ll see much more islolated storms. In other words, we’ll be back to the heat-of-the-day pop up variety of storms that we’re used to getting in the summer months. Saturday will be much of the same. Highs each day will be in the low to mid 80s. On Sunday and Monday we’ll see rain chances increase again as another front approaches. This front should bring us some lower humidity for Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
We’re also watching the tropics! It looks more and more likely that we’ll see tropical development in the southern Gulf of Mexico over the weekend. Where it goes from there is still a guess. I’ll keep you posted!
