First Alert Weather Story:
High pressure which has been in control of our weather over the last few days slowly moves offshore which will allow for more of a southerly wind. The southerly wind will bring in more heat and more humidity over the next few days.
Not only will we feel the more heat and humidity but storm chances will slowly increase as well. By Thursday and Friday, storm chances will be around 40%. Neither day will be a washout, but each afternoon does feature the potential for showers and storms.
We’re also watching the tropics. Two separate areas have a 20% chance or less of development over the next 5 days. Right now neither area shows a threat to the Midlands but we’ll continue to watch it.
