A hot and humid pattern has settled in, leading to isolated afternoon storms today. Those rain chances increase to 30% on Wednesday as a stronger disturbance passes through the area. Those rain chances will remain at 30% through Friday evening. Any storm that develops could be on the strong side. The passage of a weak cold front will usher in less humid air for the weekend, along with slightly cooler temps.
This Week’s Hazards
Keep in mind that any summer storm, while isolated, can be locally strong to briefly severe. Damaging straight-line winds are the main threat.
