We’re kicking off this Sunday on a much brighter note. One thing is for certain, it has been a hot weekend! Yesterday most areas reached highs in the middle 90s. You can expect similar temperatures for today, with the heat index topping 100. A heat advisory is in place just to our west over Mississippi and Alabama isn’t too far off from advisory criteria.
Rain is going to be hard to find today, with only a lone shower or storm possible over far southern sections of the area. Most locations will have partly to mostly sunny weather throughout the day.
The forecast gets a bit tricky starting tomorrow as a northwest flow aloft develops over the state. This will guide a few clusters of rain and thunderstorms in our direction. The timing for these features will be the tricky part. You can expect partly to mostly sunny skies each day, with average highs in the mid 90s. Keep the umbrella handy as a passing thunderstorm will be possible throughout the week.
The wet weather won’t be limited to the afternoon hours. This pattern also favors a possible storm during the overnight hours. Some of these storms could be quite strong with gusty winds, hail, and frequent lightning. Hopefully, we will get some drought relief over eastern sections of the state. We will have more details on Fox 6 news Sunday morning 7-9 AM…be sure to join us.
