Watching for the potential for severe weather this afternoon, warm and muggy

This Afternoon:
Scattered Storms (strong)
Temperatures: Around 80
Wind: light
Warm and Muggy
Lows: Mid to Upper 60s
Wind: light
Warm, Isolated Storm/Shower
Highs: Lower 80s
Wind: W 5-10 mph, increasing 15-20

After a shot at a few showers before the lunch hour, skies turn to partly sunny. Temperatures will warm to around 80 degrees today with increased humidity. After about 2 p.m., all bets are off to see some thunderstorms floating around the region - some could be strong to severe with the biggest threat being damaging winds and hail (isolated tornado can’t be ruled out).




The threat of any rain will die down late this evening and temperatures fall to the upper 60s overnight, pretty warm. We head back to the low 80s on Thursday with somewhat breezy conditions and a mix of sun and clouds. An isolated shower and storm possible tomorrow afternoon as well.

By Friday, temperatures tumble back into the mid 70s with some sunshine. A passing shower possible as you make the great getaway on Friday afternoon, but nothing too bad. By the weekend, still looking at the potential for some passing showers but all in all not bad.

Saturday, with low humidity, will end up in the mid 70s with some sunshine.

Humidity creeps back up by Sunday, as do the temperatures, topping out in the upper 70s. Memorial Day looks warmer and slightly humid with temps around 80 degrees.
