With rising heights across the Southeast, sunnier skies and drier air will be around. This will lead to both warmer temperatures as well as a higher risk for sunburns. As you can see below, the UV index will be high today (10-11). Be sure to both stay cool and hydrated but also keep that sunscreen handy.
The good news is around only temporarily as rain chances quickly return for the weekend. A cold front and associated low will bring moderate to heavy rain/thunderstorms Saturday and especially Sunday. The latest from the WPC suggests rainfall amounts between 1.25 and 2 inches today through Tuesday morning. Heavy showers/storms that work over similar locations could see minor flooding impacts. Continue to stay abreast to the forecast in the days ahead.
An isolated shower or two will be possible today, but most will stay on the dry side. Area-wide you can anticipate temperatures to be warmer (in the upper 80s) with around 90 expected for Friday. Continue to check back in for the latest as it relates to our next storm system this weekend. Moderate to heavy showers could bring a minor severe aspect as well as a minor flooding threat.
