SUMMARY: A cold front will spark a few gusty storms this evening over parts of the region. A few additional storms are possible on Wednesday, especially along and south of US 82. Temperatures will stay quite hot for the end of the week but humidity levels will be much lower for a few day starting late Wednesday.
TUESDAY NIGHT: A broken line of storms is expected to move across mainly the northern 1/2 of the WCBI coverage area. Some storms could be strong to severe with damaging wind gusts and hail. Activity will tend to wane after midnight as it moves farther to the south. Lows will be in the 70s.
WEDNESDAY: It won’t be as hot but we’re still looking at highs mainly in the low 90s with heat indices in the upper 90s to low 100s. Winds will become northerly and that will start to usher in drier air by the late afternoon and evening. A few storms are also possible, especially along and south of US 82. The chance of rain is 30%.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Clear and cooler with lows in the upper 60s to around 70. Humidity levels will be noticeably lower.
THURSDAY-FRIDAY: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies are anticipated during the daylight hours with mainly clear conditions at night. We’re going to stay warm with expected highs in the low to mid 90s. The heat index will generally stay in the 90s through Friday due to lower humidity levels. It may creep back above 100° on Saturday.
SUNDAY-TUESDAY: Warm and more humid weather builds back in and that should support more summer storms that will tend to bubble up during the heat of the day. Look for highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s with lows in the 70s.
