Isolated Strong Thunderstorms Through Friday

We're stuck in a summer-like pattern that includes hot weather and popup afternoon thunderstorms. Many of us will see no rain since the storms will be of the isolated nature. Those who do see some rain may also have the possibility of seeing storms that will reach the strong to severe limits, including strong, gusty winds, small hail, and brief heavy rainfall.

Temperatures will rise quickly this morning through the 70's and be near 80° by 8:30 am or so. Expect an afternoon high again near 90°. Looking at the 7-day, our best chance for rainfall (60%) is on Friday while our coolest day (high of 84°) will be on Friday. Expect drier and hotter conditions over the weekend and into the first of next week.

As usual, when you hear thunder head for an indoor structure. Much more information is available at: LIGHTNING SAFETY
