Storms, cooler temps expected the next two days

Published 8:59 am Wednesday, August 19, 2020

After some storms and rain moved through the area last night bringing significant rainfall to some places, expect a mostly cloudy day with a chance for more thunderstorms with a high of 82 degrees.

A storm system moved through the area early this morning bringing some thunder, lightning and rain between 4 and 5 a.m. That system is currently tracking to the northeast and is well out of the area but a storm system off the coast of North Carolina looks like it could funnel more moisture into the area later today. The chance of precipitation remains around 50% for most of the day.

So keep the umbrella nearby. Grilling out on the deck may be a little tricky around dinnertime tonight.

The forecast remains much the same for Thursday with a high of 81 and heavy thunderstorms expected in the evening hours.
