Rowan weather: Storms possible Tuesday

Some areas of Rowan had a little rain overnight, but even the dry spots are muggy as we start out with 99 percent humidity.

Today will be partly sunny with a high of 91. A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms will occur mainly after 2 p.m. A west breeze will blow in this afternoon at 5-8 mph.

Tonight, we still have a 30 percent chance of showers and storms, with a low of 70.

Tuesday, with a 50 percent chance of showers and storms, is also the day we may see severe thunderstorms and have a chance of tornadoes. Any storm could bring damaging wind, frequent cloud to ground lightning and possible hail. The day will be partly sunny with a high of 92. West wind will blow 5-11 mph. Slow-moving storms could lead to local flooding.

The chance of rain goes up to 60 percent Tuesday night, when more severe weather is possible. The low will be 71. Up to a quarter to a half inch of rain is possible.

Wednesday has a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms throughout the day, but it will be partly sunny again with a high of 91 and wind shifting from the southwest to the west northwest in the afternoon. Wednesday night has a 30 percent chance of showers and storms, too, with a low of 71.

Thursday, it all clears out, but we’ll still be hot, with a high of 91; the low will be 71.

Friday will be mostly sunny with a high of 92 and a low of 72.

The next chance of rain sneaks in Saturday, with a 30 percent chance and very hot temperatures, with a high of 96 under mostly sunny skies. Saturday night also has a 30 percent chance of rain, with a low of 72.

And Sunday still has a 30 percent chance of rain and partly sunny skies, with a hot high of 94.

Doesn’t look like there’s an end to the 90s in sight.
