Meteorologist Myles Henderson’s First Warning Forecast

Another round of storms… Expect mostly cloudy skies today with on and off showers through the day. More rain and storms will fire up this afternoon. Some storms could be strong to severe with heavy rain and frequent lightning. Temperatures will be a little cooler today with highs in the mid 80s, but it will still be muggy.

Clouds will clear out tomorrow morning with a few leftover showers possible. Highs will warm to the mid and upper 80s tomorrow, but it will feel like the 90s this with the humidity.

Expect more heat, more humidity, and more storms for the second half of the work week. Highs will climb to the low 90s Wednesday through Friday. Afternoon heat index values will reach the mid to upper 90s. We will see a mix of sun and clouds with scattered showers and storms (mainly in the afternoon).

Today: Mostly Cloudy, AM Showers, PM Storms. Highs in the mid 80s. Winds: W/N/E 5-10
