Scattered storms Wednesday & heating up by the weekend
A better coverage locally of scattered storms could occur Wednesday. Then, storm chances begin to lower for late week and the upcoming weekend along with hotter temperatures settling in.
Wednesday should again be quite muggy under a cloudy sky early. Unlike the quiet weather day we had Tuesday, the coverage of scattered storms should increase especially from the morning and through the afternoon (so not just during the afternoon). Like we have seen the past few days, a few storms could have heavy downpours, frequent lightning and strong wind gusts. Even some small hail can not be ruled out. Model data keeps scattered storms around through late afternoon, then gradually ending by early evening. If the model data is correct, then weather conditions could improve for Riverbend events. But, as always, we will keep an eye on this and keep you updated!
Showers and storms gradually fading out Wednesday Night. The coverage of scattered showers and storms Thursday should be less numerous and temperatures reaching the upper 80s. The heat will be the bigger weather story for Friday and the Father's Day Weekend. Daily highs in the lower 90s, but when the humidity is factored in, the Heat Index could make it feel like temperatures are in the upper 90s and close to 100. Some isolated pop up t-showers cannot be ruled out, but few in number. Skies should be partly sunny each day!
As always, you can depend on the StormTrack 9 Team for updates!
