Thursday Morning: Heavy rain today; More storms on the way

Weather

It will be a hot and humid day, and it could be stormy at times.

Today: There is a 60% chance for scattered storms, but it looks like storms will mainly occur in the afternoon through the evening. It will be warm and humid with highs in the lower 90s. Heat indices will be close to 100. Winds will be out of the south at 5-10 mph. High near 92.

Tonight: There is a 20% chance for early showers. Skies will be partly cloudy otherwise. Winds will be out of the south at 5-10 mph. Low near 74.

Extended: We’re looking at another chance for storms and heavy rain tomorrow. Storms likely will occur in the afternoon through the evening. There could be ponding and localized flooding as a result of the rain, so make sure to stay weather aware. More storms are likely over the weekend, but it doesn’t look like the weekend will be a washout. These showers and storms will be spotty. Temperatures will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Next week, we’ll start with temperatures in the upper 80s, but we’ll return to the 90s by midweek. Every day, there is the chance for at least a couple of brief showers.
