Thunderstorms are on their way to the Mid State. They’ll continue to weaken as they push southward from the Midwest, but they won’t dissipate completely.
Expect them to arrive in our northernmost counties just after midnight.
FUTURECAST shows their progression overnight. Notice how it won’t be a solid line of rain/storms as it moves through.
Temperatures in the morning around dawn will look like this.
Through the day tomorrow, it’ll be much cooler than today (when we had a high of 88)!
FUTURECAST shows how the best rain chance will push south of I-40 by early afternoon.
Then, we’ll dry out on Wednesday with just a slight shower chance. We’ll also have a Canadian airmass take over making for nighttime lows in the 40s and low-mid 50s and daytime highs in the 70s….10-15 degrees below average!
Hurricane Irma could bring some rain to the Mid State during the early-mid part of next week.
The ultimate path of this storm is still very uncertain. However, with maximum sustained wind at 140mph as of 10pm tonight, everyone with interests in the northern Caribbean Sea and southeastern United States coast will need to keep close tabs on this forecast through the week.
Be sure to tune in to News 4 Today in the morning, between 4am and 7am. Daphne DeLoren will track any storms in our area and have another update on Hurricane Irma.
