Weather Synopsis: Today has been a hot and humid day, and with the heat and the humidity, we’re also watching the radar for showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. These thunderstorms will be along and ahead of a cold front that will swing through the area as we get into late tonight and into Thursday. Some of the thunderstorms through the evening hours tonight could be strong to severe, a few severe, not widespread, gusty winds and heavy rainfall will be the primary threats with any storm that develops tonight.
After the front rolls through into Thursday, we will see high pressure build into the region for the end of the week and the beginning of the weekend before more chances of showers and thunderstorms come back from late weekend and into early next week.
After the next front rolls through into next week, we will bring in another unseasonably cool air mass with temperatures going below average with more sunshine. Keep and eye to the sky this evening with the threat of stronger thunderstorms in the forecast.
See you on WHAG News at 5:00, 6:00, 7:00 and 11:00 PM tonight.
