Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey's First Warning Forecast
The storms are moving out and intense heat is moving back in.
We have a Heat Advisory in effect for the entire region from Noon - 8 pm on Thursday. That means the combination of heat and humidity could be dangerous.
And don't expect rain to cool things off much. Storm chances are smaller on Thursday, but our temperatures will be higher.
Expect afternoon highs in the mid 90s with heat index values near 110°.
Temperatures and humidity levels will be about the same on Friday, but our storm chances will be a little higher.
A slow moving cold front will cool things off for the weekend but also bring us a good chance for showers and thunderstorms of both days.
We are expecting high temperatures in the mid 80s on Saturday and on Sunday.
It looks like wet weather should roll in Saturday afternoon into Saturday evening with more scattered showers and thunderstorms on Sunday and into Monday morning.
We will kick off the month of August on Monday with temperatures close to normal in the mid-to-upper 80s.
But we expect the heat and humidity to ramp back up on Tuesday and Wednesday.
