FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Possible isolated thunderstorms for Wednesday

(WAFF) -

We’re starting this morning with mainly clear skies, although high clouds will increase with time. Temperatures are warm once again with many in the mid 60s to near 70.  We’ll warm quickly with a fair amount of sunshine through the first half of the day. 

Highs will push into the mid 80s with a few spots making it into the upper 80s. Clouds should increase for the afternoon and isolated t-storms may develop.  These pop-up storms would remain hit-or-miss in nature so there will be many staying dry. 

Skies should clear heading into this evening and any storms will fade away. We’re in store for another warm night with lows in the mid 60s. Clouds will increase for Thursday, and we’ll face a higher chance for storms by the afternoon/evening. 

A cold front will move through the Valley late leading to more numerous storms than we’ve seen so far this week. Some storms could be strong with gusty winds, frequent lightning, and heavy rain but the threat for organized severe weather remains low.

Storms should wind down overnight, and most will be dry by 9am Friday. Skies will clear over the course of the day as north winds bring in cooler, drier air.  Highs should be in the mid/upper 70s for Friday and the weekend with lows dipping into the 50s. 

Skies will be mostly sunny on Saturday with a few more clouds arriving Sunday. Our next weather maker brings a chance for rain back to the Valley late Monday. Rain looks to be more widespread through the middle of next week.
