What We’re Tracking:
- Scattered showers this evening
- Widespread rain likely after midnight
- Quite hot for next week
A FLOOD WATCH is in effect for all counties in the viewing area from 1:00 AM Saturday through 1:00 PM Saturday afternoon.
Temperatures will stay on the more mild side this evening with mostly cloudy skies in the area. Scattered rain chances will be possible through the evening hours but the main wave of energy is still on the way. You can plan on a light breeze with some rumbles of thunder as well.
Chances for showers and storms start to significantly increase just before midnight and into the start of the weekend as the front lingers around the area. Not the best news for the holiday weekend, but enjoy the slightly cooler weather while you can!. Heavy rain, lightning, and thunder are all possible – setting the stage for some potential flooding.
While a chance for storms is possible on Sunday early in the day, it looks to generally dry out and heat up by the holiday. As of right now, it does look like the Fourth of July will remain mainly dry–but hot and humid! There’s a slim chance for a stray morning shower or storm, but the evening looks good!
After the weekend rain chances, the heat really starts to build in for next week. High temperatures beginning Monday will be in the middle to upper 90s and the heat index will once again be an issue as the moisture builds in. Many spots, through midweek at least, will feel like the lower 100s.
