Meteorologist Madeline Evans’ First Warning Forecast

We got a little break from the heat for the first part of the week with temperatures staying in the 80s. And highs will only reach the upper 70s and lower 80s on Tuesday, about 5 degrees below normal for this time of year. Humidity will also be much lower making us feel even more comfortable. Expect a mix of clouds and sunshine tomorrow with a 30% chance for scattered showers and storms in the afternoon to evening. We will be a bit breezy with wind coming from the east at 10-15 mph.

Scattered showers and storms will continue on Wednesday with heat and humidity making a return for the second half of the week. Highs will return to the mid 80s on Wednesday. Highs will reach the low 90s for Thursday, Friday, and the weekend. Dew points will return to the mid 70s, making it feel more like the low triple digits. Wednesday and Thursday we will see a 40% chance of showers and storms.

By Friday and into the weekend we will be warmer and drier. Rain chances will be minimal both Saturday and Sunday with a mostly sunny sky both days. Highs will reach the lower 90s with the humidity making us feel like the triple digits.
