Nothing really out of the ordinary weather-wise today through Sunday. Hazy hot and humid with potential for typical summertime hit and miss thunderstorms afternoon or early evening next three days. The coverage does not look all that great, but they will be slow movers from North to South so they can dump a lot of rain where they do form and have plenty of lightning.
But the good news is at least partial sunshine each day and more dry hours than wet even where it does rain. Many of us will be missed completely.
Remember, if you can hear thunder you are close enough to be struck by lightning even if its not raining or you don’t see any lightning.
Temperatures next three days a couple degrees either side of the normal 89 for this time of year. The Heat index will be in the low to mid 90s though the weekend, then below-normal temperatures early next week as the rain chance and cloud amount both go up.
So pretty routine summer weather next few days with the chance of a “pop-up” thunderstorm, mainly sometime between 2pm and 10pm with a smaller risk before and after that time frame.
The odds at any given spot about 3/10 today, tomorrow, and Sunday. They are random hit or miss in where they pop, so no way of knowing in advance where, so just watch the sky and radar.
Showers and thunderstorms are expected to become more numerous the first half of next week as moisture levels increase while an upper-level trough of low pressure moves over the Southeastern U.S. This will also bring lower temperatures with highs in the 80s.
By the end of next week the thunderstorm coverage is supposed to decrease and the temperature will subsequently increase.
Have a happy and safe 4th of July weekend and thanks for reading, and for listening on 955 WSB Radio at home, in the car and anywhere you stream audio across all platforms.
