Today's Forecast Image

* First Alert Day Friday
* Warm Wednesday
* Thursday Cool Air Wedge

Dry high pressure remains in control of our current weather pattern, making for a mostly sunny and warm afternoon. Highs will once again approach 80°, more than 10+ degrees above normal for the date. Soak it up while you can though, we begin to see some changes as early as Thursday that will make for an unsettled close to the week.

After a pleasant evening, the sky will turn mostly cloudy overnight with daybreak readings in the mid 50s for most neighborhoods.

A cool air wedge settles back in for Thursday, with plenty of clouds and cooler temps back into the 60s. Although we could have a few scattered showers around Thursday, the main event will arrive overnight Thursday into Friday, which is why the First Alert Day has been issued for Friday.

Friday begins with periods of rain that will be heavy at times in the morning. The storm system coming in already has a history of producing severe weather across the Deep South. One factor that will work in our favor (against severe weather) will be the morning wedge that keeps the atmosphere a little more stable, at least through the early part of the day. But, once this is overcome by the afternoon, thunderstorms, and some strong to severe, look possible.

Looking ahead, we're keeping an eye on another potential storm system heading this way next Monday. The good news is that in between these systems, the payoff comes over the weekend. We should remain dry, with highs in the mid 70s both weekend days.

Happy Hump Day!
