StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking the front that will slide across the area on Wednesday. This front will lose its punch though after slipping into the southern Appalachians. Isolated thundershowers are possible Wednesday through Friday, mainly in the afternoon and evening.
We will continue this warm, sticky, and humid pattern into next weekend. Another front will slide into the region next weekend bringing more scattered showers and thunderstorms.
Anytime, over the next week, we could see some isolated strong thunderstorms. Possible storm dangers include lightning strikes, gusty winds, and downpours in spots.
Highs will be in the mid 80s to near 90 through Saturday. Highs in the lower 80s on Sunday. Lows will be in the low to mid 60s tonight through Sunday night.
