I hope you had a fantastic week and looking forward to the weekend like I am. Weather has been pretty good, just a little on the hot and humid side. We do have some thunderstorms increasing for the weekend and a severe threat which always stinks but really does on a summer weekend. Tonight looks fine but I am watching some storms to our north. I do think we will start to get some scattered thunderstorms into the area during the morning hours.
I am really expecting scattered strong thunderstorms during the morning and afternoon, but hit and miss. However, I don’t expect much in the way of severe weather during the day. I think the better chances will be during the evening hours.
As a cold front rolls in, thunderstorms will increase during the evening hours.
During the evening, the storms that develop will be strong to severe. Now the main threat of any storms will be wind and hail.
Thunderstorms continue through the evening with a severe threat.
However, after midnight, everything should calm down and we look much better. Additional scattered storms on Sunday, but not looking for these to be severe.
Rainfall will be tricky due to the storms being scattered. But I do think most of us will fall into the 1/2-1″ range.
A few lingering scattered thunderstorms into Monday as well. Long range forecast is below.
July 15th- 17th: Temperatures will stay in the upper 80s to lower 90s for the rest of the week. We’ll also keep an eye out for scattered t-storms for the rest of the week.
July 18th-24th: The week may start warm with highs in the 80s, but we’ll see the 90s return on Tuesday and stick with us for the rest of the week. With Tuesday being an exception, we’ll have t-storm chances almost each day.
July 25th-31st: We’ll be looking at a hot and mainly dry week to wrap up the month.
August 1st-7th: Hot start but then mainly a warm week with rain chances Tuesday through Thursday.
August 8th-14th: Hot first half of the week and a warm second half. Scattered thunderstorms chances most days.
