StormTracker Morning Forecast…

A Heat Advisory is in place through 7:00 P.M. Wednesday evening. Heat indices between 103°F – 108°F are expected for several hours. Be sure to stay cool, stay hydrated, and take frequent breaks in the air conditioning. Do NOT forget about your pets!

Today: Another plume of Saharan Dust will arrive Wednesday and stay until Friday. This plume will not be as thick as the previous; however, those with respiratory issues may be affected. Mostly dry and hazy with highs in the low and mid 90s, but it will feel well into the 100s. Rain chance is 20-30%.

Tonight: Partly cloudy with a few showers around. 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 and Thursday night. For now, rain chance is around 20-30% during the day. 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 50-60%. Organized severe weather is not anticipated, but an isolated strong to marginally severe storm may be possible. 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. Organized severe weather is not anticipated, but an isolated strong to marginally severe storm may be possible. 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 50%. Organized severe weather is not anticipated, but an isolated strong to marginally severe storm may be possible. High near 90, but it will feel much hotter. Overnight low near 73.

Monday: The unsettled weather pattern continues into next week with likely rain chances. Highs in the upper 80s to around 90. Current rain chance is around 40-50%.

Tuesday: Rain at times with hot and humid conditions. Temperatures will be slightly cooler thanks to more clouds and rain in the area.
