With southeast wind off the Gulf, it’s a typical June pattern setting up for our region. Today, expect partly cloudy skies with a chance for hit-or-miss showers and thunderstorms developing into the afternoon and evening. A few storms could produce strong gusty winds, torrential downpours, and frequent lightning. Areas where heavy rainfall persists could result in localized flooding of streets and low lying areas. High temperatures will range from the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. The heat index may be as hot as 100 degrees at times. So stay hydrated and take breaks in the shade or air conditioning. A chance for thunderstorms continues through the late evening and overnight hours. This week, we’ll keep a good chance of thunderstorms each day through Thursday, then drier conditions should lead to more isolated showers and thunderstorms Friday through Sunday. A few of the storms each day could become strong and produce strong gusty winds, cloud to ground lightning strikes, and locally heavy downpours.
