LOOK AHEAD: Scattered storms Thursday, hot temperatures returning for the weekend

(WAFF) -

Stormy Thursday, hot weekend

Several rounds of storms can be expected today with the first ongoing this morning. Heavy rain and frequent lightning can be expected through the typical morning commute times, so you’ll want to allow for extra time on the road this morning. Some of the storms could be strong with gusty winds of 40-50 mph.  Later this morning, there may be a brief break from the rain, but additional storms can be expected this afternoon. There again, some storms will be strong-to-severe with damaging wind gusts being the primary threat. With all the cloud cover and rain today, we’ll stay in the 80s for highs. 

The storms will become more scattered in nature as we head into this evening. The rain should wrap up overnight. Lows will drop to around 70° for Friday morning. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds, and a stray shower is possible for the first half of the day. Most of us will stay dry on Friday with highs into the upper 80s. The weekend is looking nice, although the oppressive heat will make a return.
