Wednesday Morning: Dodging showers and storms today; Lower rain chances this weekend

Weather

Elevated rain chances continue before we dry out this weekend...

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: A cold front and an upper low to our west will trigger scattered showers and storms again today. Rain chance is around 40% to 50%. Rain chance is lower for our area thanks to drier air creeping into the region. The best chance for rain will be along and east of the I-55 corridor. Gusty wind, some hail, heavy rain will be a threat in any stronger thunderstorm. We cannot rule out a strong or even isolated severe storm. Isolated flash flooding will be possible. High near 85.

Tonight: A few evening storms before conditions quiet on down. We’ll see partly cloudy skies with overnight temperatures in the mid and upper 60s.

Thursday: Rain chances continue to be a bit lower thanks to the drier air in place. Still keeping rain chances around 30% to 40%. Some storms may be on the strong side. We’ll see a mix of clouds and sun with highs in the mid 80s. Overnight temperatures in the mid and upper 60s.

Friday: As the aforementioned upper low begins to finally push out of the region, rain chances will begin to taper. Scattered showers and storms are still expected. Rain chance is around 40%. High near 87.

Weekend: Rain chances will be lower this weekend thanks to the departing upper low. Ridging will begin to build in the region, which means we will likely see mostly dry conditions, but it will be warmer. Rain chance is around 20% on Saturday. Highs will be in the upper 80s.

Monday: Mostly sunny with highs approaching 90.

Tuesday: Hot and humid with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Rain chance is around 20%.

Tracking the Tropics: Tropical Storm Bertha has formed off the coast of South Carolina. It will move ashore later Wednesday. This will not impact our area.
