First Alert Forecast: Summery & hazy conditions will carry into the weekend...
Rain Chances, Dust Impacts Into The Weekend (Source: WLBT)

Saharan dust is lowering visibility and air quality across the area as we wrap up the work week! All this in addition to the scattered showers that continue to impact our counties mainly north of I-20. We'll feel the impacts from the dust through the weekend and will also continue on with our daily, scattered shower and thunderstorm chances. Highs will be near-normal through the weekend and into next week.

Although we’ll catch a quick break from the hazy skies into the start of next week, another plume of Saharan dust could reach the area once again by the end of the 7-day. Scattered storm chances and seasonable, muggy conditions will stick around the whole time!
