Warm and humid today, with storms by Thursday

Posted: Updated:

Good Tuesday.  We seem to be getting an early jump on summer with temps running about 10 degrees above average this week. 

Today will be warm and a bit humid with the high getting all the way to 86.  A passing shower or storm is a slight possibility, but most of you will avoid the rain today.

If you felt a little rumbling overnight between Lafayette and Fort Payne, by the way, there was a 2.1 earthquake about 12.5miles WSW of Lafayette, GA.  It took place at 1:32.

Wednesday will be about the same as today.  Warm, humid air will rule as the high gets to 84.

Heat and humidity will be building through Thursday.  A front moving through will bring in widespread showers and storms late Thursday morning through the afternoon.  While the risk of severe weather does not look high, we will keep a close eye on things as this front will be moving through a somewhat unstable air mass.  The high Thursday will reach 83.

I would love to say it will cool down behind the front, but we will actually warm up as skies clear out Friday.  It will be mostly sunny with a high of 89.

The weekend will be a bit cooler compliments of rain showers and scattered storms both Saturday and Sunday.

    Good Thursday.  We have another bitterly cold start today with temps in the low to mid 10s this morning.  Fortunately, our winds are fairly calm this morning so wind chill won't be as much of an issue heading out.

    The roads will be very slick including interstates and main city roads Tuesday night because of these cold temperatures. So travel should be discouraged.
