We’re seeing a little more sun around the area versus this time yesterday, so for the next few hours, we’ll be basking in mild autumn sunshine with occasional passing clouds. It will be a little stickier out there, too, so don’t be surprised if you break a little sweat. As for highs, they’ll be pushing, if not exceeding, the 80° mark.

Storms will rumble through this evening, some of which may pack a punch. That said, the Storm Prediction Center went ahead and placed our northwest counties under a slight risk for severe weather. In other words, damaging wind gusts and even a little hail will be possible with any of the more robust storms. Another possibility will be heavy rain, so don’t be completely surprised if you experience a little flooding in your area.

By tomorrow morning, the storms are history and we’ll see our way to a mostly sunny day. And while the humidity will fall off a little bit, our temps will be similar to today’s — perhaps a degree or two cooler.
