Today's Forecast

A record high on Wednesday also ties the 8-straight-day winter record for days in the 80°s, with a forecast that calls for 80°s right into Saturday.  Wednesday was an active weather day to our west and northwest but, fortunately, the stormy weather stayed out of the WAFB viewing area for the most part. Get set for another muggy night and early Thursday morning under partly-to-mostly cloudy skies with many neighborhoods staying in the 70°s throughout the night and into Thursday's daybreak.  The First Alert Forecast calls for a 30% chance of mainly-afternoon showers for Thursday, and while a rumble of thunder on Thursday afternoon can't be entirely ruled-out, strong storms are not anticipated.  Thursday will be another windy day too, marked by mostly cloudy skies to sun/cloud mix through the day.  The WAFB forecast calls for better rain chances for Friday and Saturday, with weather getting busier as we get into Sunday and Monday.  Our next cold front gets into the region early Sunday morning and then stalls along the coast into the early part of next week.  The forecast reads "rain likely" for both Sunday and Monday, but it will be cooler with highs on both days closer to 70°.  -- Jay Grymes / WAFB First Alert Storm Team
