Rain & Thunderstorms Return
Isolated Strong Storms Possible
The ridge that has kept us dry over the last few days is finally breaking down and allowing ample moisture to begin filtering back into the southeast. The real blast of moisture will come from the tropical low sliding up the eastern side of Mexico into Texas. This will pump mucho rain into our area Thursday through the weekend and even into Monday. Anywhere from 2 to 5 inches could fall across the WLTZ FIRST WEATHER viewing area with some of this rain being delivered via heavy downpours. Seeing that we are experiencing abnormally dry and some moderate drought conditions, this much needed rain will be a welcomed event for yards and gardens.
Although we are not expecting severe weather, there could be numerous thunderstorms that could spawn gusty winds to go along with periods of heavy rainfall. The rain will also help bring daytime highs back down near seasonal over even a few degrees below with overnight lows staying a few degrees milder than the norm.
TODAY- Mostly cloudy with isolated showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the mid 90s.
TONIGHT- Mostly cloudy with isolated showers. Lows in the mid 70s.
TOMORROW- Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the mid 80s.
