Heat vs. Rain This Week
From Meteorologist Ryan Dugger in the 4Warn Storm Center
SYNOPSIS – Scattered showers and thunderstorms provided sporadically spread cooling for much of the Wiregrass today as temperatures dropped from the upper 90s to between the upper 70s and middle 80s. Some clouds will linger over the area tonight but skies will become clearer by early tomorrow morning, giving plenty of space for the sunshine to heat the region quickly. While isolated showers and thunderstorms are likely to cool select locations tomorrow, those that remain dry can experience a hot & muggy afternoon as temperatures rise to the upper 90s. The return of better rain coverage Tuesday will provide some relief from the heat during the mid-week, but temperatures will slowly climb back to the middle and upper 90s by next weekend. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are likely each afternoon and evening after Tuesday.
