Temperatures Near Normal Today With Afternoon Storms
Afternoon showers and thunderstorms will form mainly after 2 PM and hang around into your night time hours. Expect a high today around 92 degrees which is near normal for the Auburn/Columbus area. Heat index values will top out near 98 degrees. Some of the storms could become strong today, with an isolated severe storm possible. Sunday will be more of the same with a typical summer forecast and highs near normal. The tropics are very busy with Hurricane Hanna in the Gulf of Mexico, Tropical Storm Gonzalo in the Atlantic Ocean, and Hurricane Douglas in the Pacific Ocean (very close to Hawaii). The tropics are expected to remain active and our weather pattern will become unsettled into next week.
