Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast
Hot and humid, with more storms… Highs will climb into the low 90s this afternoon but with dew point in the mid 70s it will feel even hotter. Heat index values this afternoon will reach the triple digits. Expect a mix of sun and clouds today with scattered showers and storms as a cold front moves through. A few showers are possible this morning to midday but most of the rain and storms will be later this afternoon and evening. Strong to severe storms are possible, with gusty winds and heavy downpours possible.
Temperatures will dip slightly for Wednesday with highs in the upper 80s. It will still be very humid so it will feel more like the upper 90s tomorrow afternoon. We will see another mix of sun and clouds with scattered showers and storms possible as the cold front lingers to our south.
Highs will climb back into the low 90s for the end of the work week and weekend. Expect afternoon heat index values in the triple digits for several days in a row. We will see more sunshine but a typical summer-time “pop up” shower or storm is possible.
