First Alert Forecast: periods of rain, storms through mid-week
Rain Chances Remain Elevated Through Mid-Week (Source: WLBT)

Peaks of sunshine allowed temperatures to warm into the upper 70s, near 80° for some this afternoon, but clouds kept the rest of the area in the low-mid 70s. Passing showers will remain possible tonight but coverage won’t really start to pick up until Wednesday and Thursday. Although Beta continues to weaken and is no longer a Tropical Storm, we’ll still deal with the potential of seeing 1-4″ of rainfall with gusty winds up to 30mph possible. Isolated, brief tornadoes also can’t be ruled out late Wednesday into Thursday along & south of I-20!

We’ll be a little muggier through the rest of the work week and those slightly more humid conditions look to last into the weekend. Although a few showers can’t be ruled out this weekend, it’ll be warmer and drier than what we’ve seen at the start of the season. Eventually another cold front will move through for next week... This will usher in even drier and cooler temperatures into the middle of the upcoming work week!
