First Alert Forecast: Heat For Sunday - Storms Late Monday
We'll see sun and clouds for Sunday but there is a 30 percent chance for some afternoon/evening showers and storms because of the high humidity.
Sunday's high temperatures will soar to near 100. That's why we've declared Sunday as an Alert Day. The heat index could get as high as 105-110 by the afternoon.
A better chance for storms is in your forecast for Monday evening as a cold front approaches the area. An Alert Day has been issued. Storms may pack a punch with lightning, heavy rain and gusty winds. The front will bring more seasonable temps by Tuesday and Wednesday, our high temperatures will be in the low 90s.
A heat advisory is in effect from 11 am to 8 pm Sunday. A dangerous combination of hot temperatures around 100°F and high humidity will result in heat index values around 110° this afternoon. pic.twitter.com/c9AynOOebb— NWS Columbia (@NWSColumbia) June 24, 2018
