TRACKING: Strong to severe storms possible this afternoon

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

All eyes will turn to the sky today with the return of storms.

The first half of the day has been quiet with heat and humidity continuing to build. Highs will once again range from the middle to upper 80’s with uncomfortable humidity putting heat indices in the lower 90’s, especially south. This will set the stage for storms this afternoon.

As a cold front approaches from the north, a line of storms looks to spark around 4 PM. This line will move from north to south through the afternoon and evening and should clear the area around midnight or earlier.

There is an enhanced risk for severe storms with damaging wind gusts and heavy rain as the primary threat. Large hail and an isolated tornado will be secondary threats. The severe threat will dwindle the further south the storm moves.

Once the rain moves out this evening, skies will begin to clear with lows falling to the middle 60’s.

Tuesday will end up being a fairly nice day with a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures will be a few degrees cooler as will the dew point.

Heat and humidity will start to tick back up for Wednesday.

This will lead to another isolated storm chance.

Otherwise, the rest of the work week is looking pleasant with partly cloudy skies, modest humidity, and highs in the lower to middle 80’s. Heat and humidity will try to return by the end of the weekend.
