Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

The worst of our storms should be coming to an end shortly after midnight. But one or two could linger a bit later. All the rain should be gone by daybreak. And, boy, did some of us get some good downpours. A few areas picked up more than two inches of rain.

Most of the storms should clear the area shortly after midnight.

Behind the cold front on Tuesday, temperatures will drop a few degrees. We expect highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. A few pop-up storms are possible in the afternoon.

Temperatures will rebound in a big way by Thursday. We expect high temperatures in the low-to-mid 90s with heat index values north of 100°.

Another, more powerful cold front arrives on Friday. That should bring us more scattered showers and thunderstorms and then relief for the weekend.

We are forecasting high temperatures in the low-to-mid 80s on Saturday with lower humidity values.

It will be a few degrees warmer on Sunday but still very pleasant.
