Hot and Humid Start to Holiday Weekend

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

The big weather story Saturday and Sunday will be the heat and humidity.  Afternoon highs will be in the low 90°s.  That's only a few degrees above normal.  Factor in the humidity and it will feel more like the mid to upper 90°s during the heat of the day.  Saturday and Sunday will stay mainly dry.  A few afternoon t-showers look to be possible Sunday as high pressure weakens.  A storm system and weak cold front arrives Monday.  This will increase rain chances and also trigger a couple strong to possibly severe t-storms.  A Marginal Risk for severe weather has been issued by the Storm Prediction Center for Monday.  Damaging winds is the main concern.  The front stalls across the area leading to an unsettled weather pattern through Tuesday.  Temperatures will stay cooler during the afternoon Monday and Tuesday thanks to the additional clouds and rain.  We return to a more summer like pattern to end the week. - Jeff Morrow / WAFB Storm Team
