A warm front lifted north of our area overnight, and there were plenty of storms affiliated with it. You may have heard the thunder late last night & early this morning. There were reports of down trees, power outages, and rain ranging from 1″ – 2″ (just since Midnight). Now, we’re under the warm front in a very warm and muggy atmosphere.
Heat index values will hover around 100° (actual highs in the low 90s). The heat of the day, ample moisture, and some upper level impulses could lead to afternoon showers and storms firing up again.
Best timing will be after 3PM and before 8PM. So, carry along rain gear for your outdoor plans. There’s a small chance that some storms could reach severe limits (damaging wind and hail being primary threats with any severe storms that form).
Have a way of getting severe weather alerts throughout the day.
Sunday brings lower rain chances during the day, but rain chances will increase Sunday evening into Monday morning as a cold front crosses our area.
In the wake of the front, temps fall back to average (Mid 80s)…and it’ll be a little less muggy kicking off the workweek. Watch Meteorologist Ashley Baylor tonight on WAVY 10 & FOX43 for the latest forecast updates.
