Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

Spring is still more than a week away but you would never know it by Monday’s heat and humidity. Most of us had heat index values well into the triple digits.

And that has helped spawn some showers and mean thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening.

But our bigger threat for storms comes on Tuesday. The timing is still a question mark. But we could see storms from mid morning into the early afternoon.

As a cold front to our north sags in our direction, a storm system will race along it bringing the threat for damaging winds, heavy downpours, lots of lightning and even an isolated tornado.

Once this system passes, Wednesday and Thursday are looking calmer and slightly cooler.

However, with the heat and humidity this time of the year we can rarely rule out an isolated storm.

Thunderstorms are looking more widespread on Friday from a powerful cold front. Some of the storms could be severe.

Before the front gets here, expect high temperatures in the mid 90s.

Behind the cold front, we are tracking some pretty spectacular weather for Father’s Day weekend and for Juneteenth on Sunday.

We expect blue skies and sunshine and lower humidity values. Saturday’s high temperatures will be in the low to mid 80s and on Sunday many of us may not even get out of the 70s!
