  • Hot and humid through Thursday
  • Cold front brings showers and storms Thursday and Friday
  • Much cooler weekend expected

WEDNESDAY EVENING

Another mild evening/night with a few widely scattered showers and storms through the evening hours. Temperatures will only fall into the upper 60s to mid 70s tonight ahead of Thursday’s front.

THURSDAY - FRIDAY

As the high pressure system in the Atlantic slides away from the US, our rain chances will increase with an approaching front. Expect stormy conditions beginning Thursday afternoon with numerous showers lingering into Friday. Slow-moving showers and storms may lead to localized flooding, especially along higher elevations to the west. Temperatures also cool from the upper 80s Thursday, to the upper 70s and low 80s Friday.

A cold front will bring in showers and storms Thursday and Friday.

SATURDAY • SUNDAY

Many models suggest the cold front will push east of the area by the weekend. This will be followed by some cooler weather Saturday and Sunday with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s. Shower and storm chances should be much lower than previous days, but a few are still possible.

Should the front slow down or stall, we may keep a better chance of showers for the holiday weekend.

The front should move south of the area for the weekend with a few scattered showers Saturday.
