Weekend Showers and Storms
We watched a few strong storms pass through Lee, Chambers and Troup counties earlier this evening and we can expect more this weekend. Deep tropical moisture continues to pour into the region as the remnants of Hurricane Laura move through the Ohio Valley heading toward the mid-Atlantic states. It will be very humid through early next week. Guh!
While our viewing area is not in the risk zone for severe weather this weekend (as of this writing), there is a chance for strong storms. These storms could produce winds in excess of 40 mph, frequent lightning and bursts of heavy rainfall.
An approaching cold front will help trigger those storms on Sunday into Monday before becoming stationary to our north by Monday. The front then lifts to the northeast allowing some drier air in to limit rain chances Wednesday through the rest of the week.
Daytime highs will remain steady in the upper 80s to low 90s with nighttime lows in the low to mid 70s over the next 8 days.
