Dew points are creeping back upward into the muggy lower 70s today. Combine that with highs generally in the middle to upper 80s area-wide, and many places will feel like the lower 90s this afternoon.
A few isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will try to break out during the afternoon, but coverage isn’t expected to be widespread. More areas will remain dry than those who see rain, although a few spots could get a good downpour.
Clouds will build in overnight ahead of an approaching frontal boundary. That front will interact with moisture being injected into our region thanks to a weakening Tropical Storm Nicholas well to our south along the Gulf Coast, allowing for widespread showers and thunderstorms to break out across the region tomorrow from late morning into the afternoon hours.
At this time, only those along the Kentucky border are outlooked for any possible severe weather threat tomorrow (Marginal Risk), and that’s mainly for the very low probability of damaging winds. Otherwise, we’re only expecting widespread showers and general thunderstorms.
The remnants of Nicholas look to hover over the Gulf Coast the next few days and likely won’t track this way. That said, we’ll continue to be influenced by moisture being advected into our area, so we can expect daily chances for pop up showers and storms to continue through the rest of the week and into the weekend.
