Heavy fog in spots and muggy temperatures will greet you out-the-door this Thursday morning! Dry conditions still holding and a bright sunrise is expected at 6:25 a.m. Live Guardian radar remains rain-free and should stay that way for most of our daylight hours. So expect a hot, humid day, as the tropical air will push our heat indices into the middle 90s.

A developing storm threat out west should eventually make its way here for tonight. Timing still remains up in the air! Most models show little to nothing in the terms of storms or severe threat until after midnight. I’m hesitant to bite on that considering the amount of heat and instability in play, along with activity already occurring in the upper Midwest. With that said, be aware that anytime after 7 p.m. storms could be on the rise and threaten through the overnight. This will be primarily a wind event, as gusts could reach 60-70 mph! The threat of isolated tornadoes is in play, too. Cooler, drier air still on target for the weekend, which looks fantastic.
