Another Shot at Widespread Rain, Warmup on the Way
Rain could come a bit earlier today as we see a disturbance pass over our area. Like the past couple days, the totals will be uneven - anywhere from a few drops to some spots locally receiving a healthy dose of 1"+ of rain. The rain should come closer to midday than what we've seen the past couple days, with a mainly cloudy finish to the day that may keep many of us in the 80s.
If you're not one of the ones to see the rain, highs could warm into the low-mid 90s with heat index in the triple digits. Triple digit heat index will become more common than not as we head into the weekend, as it looks like coverage will get smaller and smaller with each day. By the weekend, we'll see highs trending upward and rain chances, downward for now. Can't rule out an isolated thunderstorm or two each afternoon of the weekend.
Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of rain and storms. High: 94. Wind: SSW 5-10 mph.
Wednesday Night: Mostly cloudy with lingering showers & storms in the early evening. Low: 76. Wind: S 5 mph.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of scattered showers and storms by the afternoon. High: 96. Wind: SSW 5-10 mph.
Thursday Night: Becoming partly cloudy. Low: 77. Wind: Calm.
