Welcome to the weekend! Before you unload the week and kick it into Weekend Mode, give this article a quick two minute read so you know what weather to expect. First, it's going to be a hot and steamy weekend for many with high temperatures surging to 90 to 95 degrees with a heat index (feels-like temperature) of 100 to 105 degrees! We wouldn't be surprised if a couple locales feel as hot as 110 degrees this weekend. Please take it easy in the heat and remember: Water, water, water! Stay hydrated. Because it will be so hot and steamy this weekend, the atmosphere will be energized with a lot of potential energy to use. An advancing cold front will help spark storms this weekend. Here are some estimations of when and where the storms will be this weekend: Some of these thunderstorms will move through during the overnight hours Saturday into Sunday, so please be mindful of that and where you are in relation to the activity. On Sunday, the front will move southeast and spark more showers and thunderstorms. Here are a couple of snapshots for Sunday's forecast regarding the approximate timing and location of these thunderstorms. Note: There may be a couple of rounds of storms, some left over from Saturday night and more developing later on Sunday evening. The boundary, separating very hot and humid air from cooler/drier air, will help spark additional showers and thunderstorms on Sunday afternoon and Sunday night. Since it will be so humid, these summer storms will be packed with heavy rainfall. Look for a quick one to three inches of rain, which may cause a few areas of flooding. We hope this brief article gave you a clearer picture of what to expect this weekend. We will update you with our forecast as the weekend rolls along.
