(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.
