Scattered Showers and Storms Possible Each Afternoon
Another wave of tropical moisture is headed our way today and this weekend. We'll begin the day dry, but scattered showers and storms will likely start popping up in the afternoon. At the moment it looks like more will see rain than will not thru at least the late afternoon, so grab the umbrella! Rain won't stick with us through the entire day, but hit/miss showers and storms will be the name of the game through the weekend.
Saturday and Sunday look similar, with daily shots at rain, mainly in the afternoon. Don't cancel any outdoor plans, but be ready to head indoors for a little while if rain heads your way. The primary threat from now through the weekend will be for cloud to ground lightning and heavy rain that could quickly cause some minor flooding. Temperatures look to hover around 90 each afternoon, but the humidity will have us feeling like we're in the triple digits.
