Severe weather and heavy rainfall will be possible today

We have yet another warm, humid and rather unsettled day ahead of us as we’ll be tracking more thunderstorms with the possibility of heavy rainfall in the area.

Similar to the past couple of days, a disturbance from the west is moving toward the area, bringing a chance for some afternoon thunderstorms. Ahead of that, we’ll have sunshine in the wake of patchy fog that has plagued the area to start our Wednesday. Isolated storms will be possible in the midday and early afternoon with more widespread, possibly severe thunderstorms after 4:00 this afternoon. Large hail, damaging winds, tornadoes, and heavy rainfall will be possible through the evening commute until just before midnight. High temperatures will be in the mid-80s with a south breeze that should help with the mugginess a bit, occasionally reaching 25 miles per hour.

Heavy rain will continue to be a concern through the night tonight, even after the severe threat ends. Rainfall totals may reach two to four inches, leading to flash flooding and because of that, the National Weather Service has our entire area in a Flash Flood Watch until early Thursday morning.

Clouds will gradually clear off through the morning tomorrow with warm sunshine in the afternoon helping temperatures approach the 90-degree mark and heat indices will be close to 100.

After another bright and steamy day Friday where heat indices look to exceed 100, a cold front will settle into the area, triggering occasional thunderstorms through Saturday and Sunday and high temperatures will be in the low to mid-80s.
