It looks like we'll escape severe storms tonight with most areas staying dry through the overnight hours. I have held off to the last minute on tonight's prediction because this pattern is always a bit problematic when it comes to a forecast. I have been watching storms developing across the Ohio Valley this afternoon and tonight, but it appears those storms will not impact our area.
I do think we could see a round of showers and storms during the early morning along with some dense fog. Our Microcast Model run here at Fox6 is suggesting a chance of rain and storms tomorrow. The best chance for the stronger storms will remain north of I-20 throughout the day. The atmosphere is very unstable so I do think it's possible we could see some thunderstorms produce winds over 40mph along with frequent cloud to ground lightning and very heavy rainfall. Flash flooding is likely with any thunderstorm that develops due to very weak steering winds.
Weekend Forecast: Rain chances continue to look high for the upcoming weekend. Saturday and Sunday will not be a washout, but we are expected a good coverage of showers and storms during the afternoon on both days. High temperatures will reach the lower to mid 90s with morning lows in the mid 70s.
Beach Forecast: We'll see a chance of scattered storms daily through Sunday. Rain chances are expected to be the highest on Sunday at around 60%. On Friday and Saturday, we'll see rain chances around 30% with partly sunny skies. High temperatures will reach the upper 80s.
