We’re looking at another warm and quiet night around the area. Temperatures will bottom out in the mid 60s again by daybreak and the wind will continue from the SE between 5 and 15 mph.
Most of our Thursday will be warm, breezy, and dry. A stray afternoon shower or storm is possible but the better opportunity for rain will come after 7 p.m. Afternoon highs are expected to top out in the mid 80s.
A line of strong to severe storms will race across our viewing area between 7 p.m. Thursday and about 2 or 3 a.m. Friday. Wind gusts between 60 and 80 mph seem to be the highest threat at this time but we cannot discount the risk of a few isolated tornadoes. This will be an overnight severe weather event so you will want to stay weather aware and make sure your weather radio is ready. We’ll be fully staffed in the First Alert Weather Center monitoring the situation.
Showers may linger for a few hours Friday morning but skies will clear from west to east during the day as high pressure moves on in. Afternoon temperatures will only be in the upper 50s to low 60s and that will feel like a whole other world compared to the heat and humidity of the last few days.
The weekend still looks awesome! We’ll top out near 70 on Saturday but low to mid 70s appear likely on Sunday. Skies will be sunny both days.
