Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: We’re in a typical summer weather pattern for the next few days. It’s going to be hot, very muggy and we’ll see spotty thunderstorms. Rain chance is around 20-30%. Any storm that develops will have the potential to produce gusty wind, frequent lightning, and heavy rain. High temperatures will be in the low to mid 90s, but it will feel like the 100s.

Tonight: Mainly quiet with passing clouds. Low near 76.

Wednesday: Another plume of Saharan Dust will arrive late Tuesday/Wednesday and stay until Thursday. This plume will not be as thick as the previous. We will need to monitor air quality for those with respiratory issues. Mostly dry and hazy with highs in the low and mid 90s, but it will feel well into the 100s. Rain chance is 20%. Overnight low near 75.

Thursday: Hazy skies with slight rain chances. We will have to watch for storms to move into the area late on Thursday. For now, rain chance is around 20-30%. Highs in the low and mid 90s, but it will feel well into the triple digits. Overnight low near 75.

Friday: A storm system will begin to move into the region. Troughing to our east, a cut off low and deep tropical moisture will lead to higher rain chances starting Friday and lasting through the 4th of July weekend. Rain chance is around 40-50%. High near 91. Overnight low near 75.

4th of July/Saturday: Showers and storms are likely at times. Rain chance is currently at 50-60%. It will not be a total washout, but if you have outdoor plans, have that plan b ready to go should any storm find you. High near 93, but it will feel much hotter. Overnight low near 74.
