First Alert Forecast: late Summer warmth continues mid-week
Temperatures Continues To Run Well-Above Average This Week (Source: WLBT)

We’re unseasonably warm as we carry through the work week... Highs will top out in the mid-upper 80s this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon with dry conditions sticking with us. Although we could see a stray shower or two Thursday, better chances for scattered showers and storms will move in for Friday. Our first of two cold fronts will be moving through as we wrap up the work week, but it won’t do much to our temperatures.

Expect highs near 80° Saturday and Sunday afternoon, and even into the start of next week. A stronger, second cold front still looks to push through by Tuesday, however! This will likely bring another round of showers and storms and, eventually, much lower temperatures and dewpoints!

Fortunately, no local impacts from the tropics are anticipated in the next 7 days... T.S. Epsilon will stay well to our east & the disturbance in the Caribbean has yet to develop. We’ll keep an eye on it, though... Stay tuned for frequent updates!
