(Wednesday, July 7, 2021) The hot and humid weather continues along with more showers and thunderstorms.
Some storms could be strong or severe in the afternoon once again.
Tropical moisture from the remnants of Tropical Storm Elsa could produce very heavy rain Thursday.
The persistent storm over the Great Lakes will keep our weather warm, muggy, wet and stormy Wednesday.
Watch for more thunderstorms in the afternoon that could be strong or severe with heavy rain, hail, gusty winds, and frequent lightning.
I’m still very warm and muggy with highs in the 80s.
Thursday gets interesting… There’s an area of low pressure moving westbound from the Great Lakes that will have moisture from what will be the remnants of Tropical Storm Elsa to our east.
The combination of the two systems will likely result in very heavy downpours at times.
Many spots could see up to 2” of rain or more.
This is enough rainfall to cause some flooding problems so be on the lookout!
The rain starts to taper off and pull away during the day Friday.
The start of the weekend looks much drier and more comfortable.
More showers and warmer weather return by the start of next week.
