First Warning Forecast: A few storms possible this evening, more storms tomorrow afternoon

Posted at 5:56 PM, Aug 21, 2019

Storms that brought heavy rain and localized flooding moved through this afternoon. We are keeping a chance for a couple more storms through tonight, but the bulk of storms have moved through. This is all thanks to a trough  of low pressure that has been situated over the area for the past few days. Temperatures will dip into the 70s overnight.

A cold front will move through late Thursday. This will bring a chance for showers and storms once again during the afternoon and evening. Another chance for storms to end the work week. Temperatures will be cooler with highs in the 80s. The unsettled weather will continue into the weekend. It will be more comfortable with highs in the 80s.
