Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

You know it’s hot when our coolest day over the next week still brings a high temperature of 85°!

That “cooler” weather comes tomorrow. But it will still be muggy, and we still have a good chance (40%) for scattered showers and thunderstorms along a stationary front draped across the region.

The 90s return on Thursday and stick around through Saturday. At times it will feel like 100° or higher. A few showers and thunderstorms may cool us off from time to time. But some of the storms, especially on Thursday, could be strong or even severe.

A cold front will knock our temperatures back down into the mid to upper 80s on Sunday. But we will be heating right back up as we head into the work week!
