The status of our atmosphere will have you sweating the moment you step outside in 2.2 seconds! It is MUGGY out there.
A few showers & thunderstorms have blossomed this afternoon. Some of the stronger storms have produced quarter size hail and 50-60 MPH winds. They will also bring quite a bit of heavy rainfall with frequent lightning through early tonight.
After sunset, these storms will lose their punch.
While another round of storms is possible Thursday morning, another batch of spotty showers will develop in the afternoon.
Friday offers up yet another chance...
This weekend, the heat will build, so I highly suggest picking your spot early at your favorite pool or lake.
Temps will be in the middle 90s with heat indices approaching 100. While a shower is possible Saturday morning, the holiday weekend looks mostly dry until rain chances return next Tuesday.
I'll have a closer look at our evening storms on KSN News tonight. I'll also help you plan your outdoor events around our other opportunities for rain. - Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman
