Meteorologist Madeline Evans’ First Warning Forecast

Tomorrow will feel even hotter with actual temperatures in the 90s and heat index values in the triple digits. We will see partly cloudy skies tomorrow with showers and storms moving in with a cold front tomorrow afternoon and evening. The morning and early afternoon will be dry, by the late afternoon we will start to see some spotty showers. We will see the most widespread rain by 11 pm which will continue overnight. As of now we are not expecting severe storms but you could hear a rumble of thunder. Wind will pick up from the southwest 10-15 mph.

A few showers will linger into Wednesday morning, then skies will clear. Highs will drop into the mid 80s for the second half of the work week and there will be less humidity. We will see sunny skies on Thursday with rain chances returning for the weekend. Saturday and Sunday will have a 40% chance of rain and temperatures will be up the mid to upper 80s.
