A Bit Drier Air Moves In…If Only For A Short Time

A cold front moving through the state today will aid in the development of showers and thunderstorms (mostly southern Midlands)  As usual, some of the storms could produce heavy rain.

Littler drier and a bit less humid for Thursday as we'll see only isolated thunderstorms.  It's July so the heat and humidity much return…by Friday into the weekend, we are right back at it with highs lower 90s, higher humidity and scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms.

Some days may have a better rain chance than other, this is due to small disturbances that will move through the state and enhance storm chances each time they arrive.


No tropical systems expected to develop over the next two days.

Weather Headlines:

-          Scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon…mostly the southern Midlands will be the focus for more widespread activity.

-          Little drier air moves in for Thursday with only isolated late day storms.

-          Humidity and better storm chances return for Friday into the weekend.        


Today:  Partly cloudy.  40% chance of showers and thunderstorms.  Highs lower 90s

Tonight:  40% chance of showers and thunderstorms through the evening.  Low in the  middle 70s

Thursday:   Partly cloudy, 20% chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.  Highs lower to middle 90s
