Rowan weather: Chance of storms

Not much has changed since Tuesday, except the chance of showers and storms on Thursday has increased.
Look for spotty showers and thunderstorms today. As always, some of these storms could become severe, with cloud-to-ground lightning, torrential downpours, hail and localized damaging wind gusts.
The storms are more likely later this afternoon. Expect mostly sunny skies and a hot and humid high of 88. The chance of rain is 30 percent. It’s also a code yellow or moderate air quality day, due to particle pollution. Tonight, showers and storms may continue and we can expect a low of 63, with less than a 10th of an inch of rain, except higher in storms.
Thursday’s chance of showers and thunderstorms is 60 percent, mainly after 3 p.m. It will be partly sunny and near 84. It will be another moderate air quality day. Showers and storms continue into the evening, but taper off later. It will be cloudy and around 63. We may get up to a quarter of an inch of rain.
Friday’s chance of showers and storms has gone up to 40 percent, with a mostly cloudy day and a high near 78. Friday night, look for a 30 percent chance of showers and a low of 61.
If the prediction stands, the weekend looks quite pleasant, good for all the outdoor activities planned, including the big Streamliners at Spencer event at the N.C. Transportation Museum. Twenty-six locomotives will be on display.
Saturday should be mostly sunny and 80, with a low around 59. Look for the same Sunday, mostly sunny and 80 and a low of 59 again.
To start off the new work week, Monday will be partly sunny and 83, with a low around 64. Tuesday will bring a 30 percent chance of showers and storms and higher temperatures, around 87.
