Daily Storms Possible for the Long Holiday Weekend
Today we are at the halfway point of the year….and what a year it has been, huh? Can we get a do-over?
Outside of a few spots of heavy rain and lightning, it was rather quiet this afternoon and we’re anticipating the same for Friday, but rain chances will kick up a notch or two for the weekend. A weak cold front is slowly sinking through the area and is expected to become stationary to our south along the Florida Panhandle where it will linger through early next week. Several blasts of energy will ride along that frontal boundary and trigger daily showers and thunderstorms across the long holiday weekend. While there could be a few strong storms during the heat of the day that could produce gusty winds, heavy downpours and lightning, no severe weather is anticipated.
It will stay quite warm to hot through Sunday with afternoon highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. With the thick humidity, the heat index will approach 100° or even break it. Overnight lows will range from the upper 60s to mid 70s.
