Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey's First Warning Forecast:
For the first time in 10 days, many of us did not make it to the 90° mark! The trade-off, of course, was rain. Lots of heavy downpours.
But as our rain chances drop over the next few days, our temperatures will be climbing once again.
Expect highs in the lower 90s on Wednesday with a slight chance for a shower or thunderstorm popping up in the afternoon. A few storms could be severe. Otherwise, we will enjoy partly cloudy skies.
The heat and humidity really kick in Thursday and Friday. We are expecting high temperatures in the mid 90s with heat index values in the afternoon close to 110°!
A few pop-up showers and thunderstorms are possible, but not likely.
Our rain chances will be going up for the weekend and that will mean our temperatures will be going down.
Yet another cold front will move in and hit the brakes. As that front lingers across the area this weekend we can expect slow-moving thunderstorms to develop along it.
There is a 50% chance for wet weather both days this weekend with highs in the mid 80s.
As we head back to work on Monday that front heads out of town as a warm front.
That will send temperatures back up into the upper 80s and lower90s for the first part of the work week.
