First Alert Forecast: Hot, steamy, & stormy into Independence Day Weekend
Summer Sizzle To Start July (Source: WLBT)

Another hot & steamy day is ahead of us with high temperatures expected in the low-mid 90s and feels-like temperatures exceeding 100° for much of the area! Spotty downpours & t'storms will be expected as well...

The ridge of high pressure that has allowed for all of this heat will build westward into the rest of the week and we'll see a return of more unsettled conditions! Starting Thursday and taking us through the end of the forecast period, we'll have the likelihood of daily, passing showers and storms. 

This pattern will include our Independence Day weekend... Fortunately, we won’t be dealing with wash out conditions on the 4th of July, but scattered showers and storms could impact some of those afternoon & early evening outdoor plans! Highs will top out near 90° through much of the 7-day forecast.

First Alert Forecast: hot, steamy start to July
