First Alert Forecast: Showers & storms likely Friday evening
Rain, Storms Likely Friday Evening As A Front Moves Through (Source: WLBT)

We’ve had a very summer-like work week, but we’re about to catch a quick break from the heat & humidity... A cold front passing overhead will bring us the chance for scattered showers and storms tonight, and cooler temperatures to kick off the weekend. Heavy rain and gusty winds are certainly possible as these storms move through tonight, so be sure to keep your First Alert Weather App handy!

Anticipate lingering cloud cover into Saturday, which will help hold temperatures in the 60s all day long. We’ll finally see some clearing through the day Sunday as highs recover back to the 70s.

As many across the state deal with another round of heat & humidity by next Monday and Tuesday, a cold front will be just to our NW. This will allow for a gradient in temperatures across the region before a surface low and associated front finally move overhead and clear the area to the east. For us, this will mean for warm conditions to start the week, but much cooler temperatures to finish it out. Rain chances will also pick up in this time & look to be the highest here Wednesday and Thursday. The cool temperatures behind the front should last into Halloween! Stay tuned for frequent updates!
