Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: Dust sticks around at least for another day or so. Those with respiratory issues may be affected. Hot, humid, and hazy with highs in the low and mid 90s, but it will feel well into the 100s. Rain chance is 20-30%. Storm chances increase tonight.

Tonight: We will have to watch for storms moving in from the north or northeast later tonight. If these storms hold together, they could be on the strong side – gusty winds, frequent lightning, and heavy rain would be the threats. Rain chance is around 50%. Partly cloudy with a low near 76.

Friday: A trough, a boundary draped over the southeast, and deep tropical moisture will lead to higher rain chances starting Friday and lasting through the 4th of July weekend. Rain chance is around 60%. Organized severe weather is not anticipated, but an isolated strong to severe storm may be possible. Heavy rain could lead to some nuisance flooding. High near 91. Overnight low near 75.

4th of July/Saturday: Showers and storms are likely at times. Rain chance is currently at 60%. It will not be a total washout, but if you have outdoor plans, have that “plan b” ready to go should the storms find you. Organized severe weather is not anticipated, but an isolated strong to severe storm may be possible. Heavy rain could lead to some nuisance flooding. High near 90, but it will feel hotter. Overnight low near 74.

Sunday: Showers and storms are likely at times. Rain chance is currently at 60%. Organized severe weather is not anticipated, but an isolated strong to severe storm may be possible. Heavy rain could lead to some nuisance flooding. High near 90, but it will feel hotter. Overnight low near 73.

Rain estimates through Monday morning. Some may see double this amount.

Monday: The unsettled weather pattern continues into next week with likely rain chances. Again, heavy rain could lead to flooding issues for some. Highs in the upper 80s to around 90. Current rain chance is around 50-60%.

Tuesday: Rain at times. Again, heavy rain could lead to flooding issues for some. Rain chance is around 50-60%.

Wednesday: Rain chances will begin to taper as we wrap up the work week. Rain chance is around 40-50% for now.
