First Alert Forecast: Summer-like pattern to continue!

Although most of today's shower and thunderstorm activity is confined to the eastern and SE parts of the state, scattered showers and storms will remain possible for us into the rest of our afternoon and evening hours. Temperatures will be topping out in the upper 80s this afternoon, feeling more like the 90s thanks to our humid conditions.

We'll have several additional disturbances move overhead over the next couple of days, spurring additional rain chances through the rest of our work week. It does look like the strongest of these will pass by Wednesday-Thursday, allowing for the chance of strong-severe storms, especially in our northern counties.

A ridge of high pressure will be building in by Friday! This will decrease our rain chances, but increase our temperatures into the weekend... As dewpoints will remain in the steamy range, feels-like temperatures will look to exceed 100° in some spots. Only spotty shower and storm chances will stick with us Friday through Sunday. Stay tuned for forecast updates!
