A cold front to our north this morning will settle southward through the day bringing one final round of showers and storms across the area this afternoon.
Showers will be spotty this morning, but expect the chance for rain to pick up as we head into this afternoon. Here's WAFF 48 Pinpoint Predictor at 2pm.
The overall threat for severe weather looks low, but as we've seen in the last few days a few strong storms are possible. Our main concerns will be locally heavy rain which could cause some flooding. Frequent lightning and gusty wind are also possible. The strongest storms could also contain some hail.
Behind the cold front, drier air will begin to filter in Thursday and Friday. That will do 2 things...first, we have dry weather in the forecast as we end the week....second, the humidity will drop off, making it feel much more comfortable outside. The dew points, which are a measure of the moisture in the air, will drop from around 70 today, into the upper 50s tomorrow afternoon.
We won't necessarily get cooler behind the front. Overnight lows will fall into the 60s due to the drier air moving in. But with more sunshine in the forecast, and no rain to cool us down, afternoon temperatures will be on the climb through Friday.
