Rowan weather: More storms in our future

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, June 11, 2014

It was a dark and stormy night around Rowan County, leaving some people without power. The storms were even heavier to our northeast.
After Monday’s storms and last night’s, we’re under another hazardous weather outlook today, with numerous thunderstorms expected to develop, especially this afternoon and into the night. Some of the storms will become severe, just like the last two days.
The chance of bad weather today is 60 percent, and it will be a mostly cloudy day. Rainfall totals can be heavy in the strong storms. Expect a high of 89. Tonight’s low will be 67, with continuing storms.
We’ll still have a good chance of showers and storms Thursday — 50 percent during the day, and it will be mostly cloudy again, with a high near 83. Thursday’s low will be 64, with a 40 percent chance of showers on Thursday night.
Friday won’t be any improvement, with another 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, starting as early as 7 a.m. Otherwise, it will be mostly cloudy and hot, around 86. The 50 percent chance of showers continues Friday night with a low around 64.
Nothing much changes for the weekend and early next week. Every day will bring a 30 to 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Saturday will be mostly sunny, with storms popping up in the afternoon. Expect a high of 86 and a low of 64.
Sunday’s high will be 84, under partly sunny skies, with a 40 percent chance of precipitation. You may be able to squeeze your Father’s Day grilling in without a problem. Just keep an eye to the sky and check the forecast frequently. Sunday night will drop to around 65.
Monday and Tuesday will be hot and humid, just like every other day we’ve had, with the continued chance of showers and storms. Monday will be mostly sunny and near 86; the low will be around 66.
Tuesday, the high climbs to 89, with a continued chance of rain. Some forecasts show Monday and Tuesday highs up in the 90s, so it’s just going to be a tough week.
