Hot & humid Wednesday with evening storm threat
It was a warm, above-average day Tuesday with temperatures topping off in the 80s with a mixture of sun and clouds. Wednesday morning is starting off very warm, with temperatures in the 60s and 70s. Wednesday afternoon temperatures continue to warm up, even warmer than yesterday, in the upper-80s and even some lower-90s possible. These hot temps will be accompanied by humid conditions as well. The mix of the hot and humid conditions will bring with it the chance of strong to severe storms for the evening hours. These storms will be moving from north to south throughout the evening. Damaging wind gusts, large hail, and isolated minor flooding are all possible. The main area of risk for severe weather will be in the northern half of the viewing area. Areas north of US Route 50 are of greatest risk for seeing damaging winds and large hail.
The chance for more scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible Wednesday overnight into all day Thursday. Isolated showers and storm possibilities stick around Friday to end the workweek, but temperatures are staying warm both Thursday and Friday with highs in the mid-to-upper 80s. Heading into the weekend, we could see a few isolated showers Saturday then dry and sunny conditions expected for Sunday with continued warmth. Warm, above-average temperatures follow us into next work-week. We’ll start off Monday and Tuesday with dry conditions.
