FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Scattered showers will continue to develop throughout Wednesday

(WAFF) -

Scattered showers will continue to develop across the Valley through the mid-morning. This rain should not be as widespread as yesterday, but could still be locally heavy.  Also, storms will be capable of producing frequent lightning as well as 30-40 mph wind gusts. 

You may want to spot yourself a few extra minutes for the morning drive just in case. Any rain should taper off by the 9-11a timeframe. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds into the afternoon, and highs should warm into the lower 90s. Isolated storms could develop with the afternoon heat. 

We’ll also have to watch for a cluster of storms dropping into the Valley as a result of convection well to our northwest. The latest runs of guidance keep most of that activity to our north, but it is something we’ll keep an eye on as the day progresses.

Thursday should be similar in that we could start the morning with a few showers. By midday, we should be dry with a mix of sun and clouds. It should be a few degrees hotter, though, with highs into the mid-90s. 

Isolated storms are possible during the heat of the day, and again, we’ll have to keep an eye on the storms to our northwest. The heat kicks into high gear Friday with highs into the upper 90s and a heat index in the low triple digits. 

Most will remain dry with only a stray storm in the forecast. Our weather pattern becomes more unsettled over the weekend. Temperatures won’t be as hot as Friday and we do face a higher chance of rain. 

Despite many seeing 0.5-1.5” of rain on Tuesday rain is still sorely needed across the Valley. Most areas continue to run a deficit of 5-8” of rain since the start of the year.
