The First Warning Storm Team is tracking showers/storms and milder weather in your forecast.

Some lingering isolated showers/storms overnight, otherwise partly cloudy and warm. Low temperatures will be in the upper 70s. The front will slowly push through our area Thursday and Friday. This will bring a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Any storms that develop could produce heavy rain and gusty winds. Localized flooding will be a concern. This rain will help to cool us down a bit. Expect highs to dip into the upper 80s to lower 90s on Thursday. Heading into Friday, most areas will fall to the upper 80s with a chance for showers and storms.

80s all weekend, with a few showers and storms possible.

Overnight: Partly Cloudy. Lingering shower or storm (20%). Lows in the upper 70s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Partly Sunny. Scattered Showers/Storms (40%). Highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.
