Meteorologist April Loveland's First Warning Forecast
Skies will be partly cloudy overnight with lows in the low 70s.
Not quite as hot on Thursday, but highs will still reach the mid 80s, with heat index values in the low 90s. A cold front will approach and give us a chance of showers and storms during the afternoon and evening hours. Some storms could become strong to severe. The biggest threat will be damaging wind gusts and locally heavy rainfall which could lead to some flooding. It will also be a bit breezy with winds out of the south at 15-20, with some higher gusts.
The front will stall to our south keeping us unsettled through the weekend and into next week. Expect temperatures to trend in the upper 70s and low 80s with shower and storm chances every day. Doesn't look like any day will be a complete washout though. Just keep an eye on the sky and your umbrella handy!
A well-defined tropical wave is located about 425 miles east of the Windward Islands, producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Although further development is not expected due to dry air and adverse upper-level winds, some areas of heavy rain and gusty winds are possible across portions of the Windward Islands on Thursday and Thursday night while the wave moves westward at 15 to 20 mph.
* Formation chance through 2 days: LOW (10%)
* Formation chance through 5 days: LOW (10%)
