Thursday, June 27 Forecast Discussion

Plenty of sunshine again today as temperatures return to the low 90s and heat indices around 100 degrees. The heat and humidity may cause a storm or two to develop during the evening hours, but the question is can we get these storms to form? As of now, it doesn't appear that storms want to initiate, but it is something to keep in mind if you have any outdoor plans tonight.

Tomorrow is a much better chance for severe weather as a cold front will drop down from the north. The Storm Prediction Center already has all of us under a slight risk of severe weather tomorrow with hail the main threat followed by damaging winds. This front does not look to arrive until the evening hours with rain lasting into the overnight.

Once the front clears to our south on Saturday morning, we should actually remain dry through our Saturday with cooler and less humid air with us. We will feel the full effects of the cooler air starting on Sunday when lows will be in the lower to mid 60s. We will start to slowly warm back to around 90 by the middle of next week.

Rain chances won't completely disappear for the weekend and to start next week, but rain chances will be slim. The best chance of rain after Friday and Saturday morning looks to be Wednesday and the Fourth of July with scattered showers and storms possible each afternoon.
