Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

Summer weather seems to be settling in just as we approach the unofficial start of summer on Memorial Day. Wake-up temperatures will be in the low to mid 70°s this weekend, with highs soaring to or going a little above 90°. Factor in the humidity and heat index values could top 100° at times. The good news is that rain shouldn't be much of an issue for the next couple of days with only isolated showers expected on Saturday and Sunday. However, things go downhill as we move into Memorial Day with widespread shower and t-storm activity expected along a cold front. It shouldn't be an all-day rain, but you shouldn't definitely have a 'Plan B' ready to go for any outdoors BBQs. Scattered to numerous showers and t-storms will continue into at least the mid part of next week as the cold front meanders nearby. - Steve Caparotta & Jay Grymes / WAFB Storm Team
