StormTeam 8 Forecast: High 85° / Low 70°... Muggy with a good chance of t-storms overnight tonight through tomorrow morning.
Updated Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at 5:36 PM
A warm front will move toward the region later tonight. This front will set the stage for showers and t-storms later tonight into tomorrow morning. It will be increasingly muggy, with overnight lows in the upper 60s to near 70 with dew points in the middle and upper 60s.
T-storms will more than likely be ongoing over parts of the area tomorrow morning. They should gradually shift northeast by mid morning or early afternoon as the warm front moves to near the I-90 corridor. This will allow areas south of I-90 to warm to near 90, while areas to the north stay in the lower to middle 80s. High dew points will make it feel like the lower to middle 90s tomorrow afternoon. ( However... if the front stalls farther south than expected, the entire area will stay cooler. ) Another weak disturbance will track along the front late in the day tomorrow. This will set the stage for another chance of showers and t-storms late in the day into tomorrow night. Confidence in rain chances is not high at this time, mainly because we need to figure out where the front will stall. As far as severe weather is concerned, there is a chance for isolated severe storms late tonight through tomorrow night. Gusty winds and possibly large hail would be the main threats. In addition, these storms will be capable of producing very heavy rainfall. This could lead to local flooding problems. Be sure to stay tuned.
Looking Ahead... The warm and humid conditions will stick around for the end of into the weekend. Temperatures will top out in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees on Friday with a chance of a few showers and storms.
The rain chances go up a bit Saturday, but it still doesn't look like a washout. Temperatures will be in the middle to upper 80s.
Small rain chances will continue Sunday and into next week. Temperatures will cool into the upper 70s by the middle of next week.
Have a great night! -Cory Malles
