WEATHER-WXWALL


STORM THREAT CONTINUES

Strong storms and heavy rainfall rolled through parts of the Urban Corridor Thursday, resulting in some minor flooding. The showers and storms will continue to diminish this evening as temps fall into the 70s. An isolated sprinkle is still possible overnight, with lows in the mid 70s.

More storms are expected on Friday. Some Saharan dust is also expected to move into the area late in the day. This dust will reduce the coverage of showers and storms in the region.

However, the dust may also result in strong storms with activity that does develop. Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

The Saharan dust looks to exit on Saturday. Again, coverage of showers and storms may be lower than average, with highs on Saturday holding in the low 90s.

The dust is long gone by Sunday. This will result in a return to more typical July weather. We'll see plenty of sun in the morning hours, with scattered storms developing in the afternoon. Highs on Sunday will be in the low 90s.

The stormy weather pattern looks to continue into next week, with AM sunshine and PM storms likely. Highs next week look to stay in the low 90s.

TROPICAL UPDATE

It remains very quiet in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea and the open waters of the Atlantic. Two areas of Saharan dust will keep a lid on any activity over the next week.

No major activity is expected over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...
