Good morning and happy summer (as of 5:07 AM today)! You’ll need your rain gear on hand today. As high pressure continues to breakdown, this will allow for more widespread rain and storms in the forecast. Rain may impact both your morning and evening commutes so keep your First Alert Weather App on hand for radar and video updates throughout the day. Mostly cloudy skies and rain will bring a little relief from the heat with highs in the 80s. Scattered showers and thunderstorms stay in the forecast overnight into early tomorrow. Strong storms with damaging wind gusts will be possible later tonight.
We’re giving you the First Alert about the threat for strong to severe storms on Friday. Where Thursday night’s storm boundaries set up will have a big impact on our severe weather risk. The longer the rain and clouds linger early Friday, the lower our severe threat will be. If rain and clouds clear out early and we see more sunshine then be prepared for stronger storms later in the day. Stay weather aware and download the First Alert Weather App for updates. All types of severe weather are possible Friday afternoon and evening.
Scattered storms remain in the forecast this weekend with higher rain chances Saturday as opposed to Sunday. A warming trend is in sight as well for the weekend as high temperatures climb back into the 90s.
