Starting Sunday with mostly quiet conditions, but there are still some concerns. Patchy and thick morning fog has set up around the region thanks to the muggy air in place. Keep in mind that visibility could suddenly drop, and fog will take a bit to lift and break. A few isolated showers are showing again this morning and mainly in south-central counties.

Sunday afternoon will be a lot like Saturday in that we heat up quickly, and storms will roll. Scattered rain and thunderstorms are expected, although primarily south of I-64. Heavy downpours, frequent lightning, hail and wind possible. Storms will dissipate overnight as heat lowers. Next week looks to bring a mostly quiet weather pattern, but we’ll still be dealing with summer conditions. Temperatures lower for a day thanks to a weak front moving in. Isolated showers and thundershowers possible Monday afternoon/evening, although the chance is low. Tuesday will bring more sunshine and an even lower chance for rain. The heat will crank up and so will the humidity. Other than the occasional pop-up shower or storm, the entire week looks quiet. Temperatures will remain in the upper 80s, low 90s every afternoon into next week, even after a weak, late-week cold front. We’re also watching the tropics with the newly-formed Tropical Storm Cosme in the Pacific, and a late-week low pressure wave that could become tropical in the Gulf of Mexico.
