First Alert Forecast: unsettled, steamy weather continues mid-week
Summer Heat, Storms and Humidity Continue This Week (Source: WLBT)

Showers and storms once again will continue to impact the region today! Expect the potential for heavy rain, frequent lightning, gusty winds, & flash-flooding as storms will likely form along the stationary front stalled out across the region. Highs will only top out in the mid-upper 80s for this reason. 

Unsettled conditions will continue into Wednesday before a pattern shift arrives for the rest of the 7-day forecast! We’ll be on the eastern edge of a ridge with multiple disturbances moving overhead into the weekend... This will allow for lots of heat & humidity, in addition to the opportunity to see multiple complexes of storms over the course of the period. Feels-like temperatures, outside of any of those storms moving in out of the NW, could exceed 110° through the weekend!

First Alert Forecast: unsettled, steamy summer days continue
