Steamy With Storms, Flood Watch Continues

  A flood watch continues through Friday evening for the east coast metro area, which is already waterlogged from days of sometimes heavy rain.  Friday features a mix of sun and clouds to start, with passing showers and storms throughout the day, so be careful in areas with localized flooding.  Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s, but it will feel at least 10 degrees hotter.

Saturday will bring sun, clouds, showers, and storms, with the most widespread activity along the Gulf coast and in the interior.  Saturday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Showers and storms will be around the western part of our area on Sunday, but the east coast metro area will see good sun, some clouds at times, and a few afternoon showers and storms.  Sunday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Monday will feature good sun to start with building clouds, showers, and some storms in the afternoon.  Monday’s highs will be in the low 90s.

Look for more clouds, showers, and some storms on Tuesday.  Highs on Tuesday will be near 90 degrees.
