Rowan weather: Guess what — hot, humid, stormy

Looks like another hot and muggy week, with a chance of storms almost every day.

Today’s chance of rain is 40 percent, with showers and storms arriving mainly after 2 p.m. It will be partly sunny and 89. Wind will be calm, becoming south around 5 mph this afternoon.

The moist, unstable atmosphere today may cause some thunderstorms to cluster and produce areas of heavy rainfall, with a few damaging wind gusts.

Tonight’s chance of rain is 50 percent, with cloudy skies and a low of 70. Calm wind. Patchy fog in the morning. A tenth to a quarter inch of rain is possible, except higher in those storm clusters.

Tuesday brings the usual 30 percent of showers and storms, starting as early as 8 a.m. It will be cloudy at first, then becoming partly sunny, with a high of 90. Not much wind. The same chance of rain is possible Tuesday night, with a low of 68.

Wednesday has a 20 percent chance of showers and storms after 3 p.m. It will be partly sunny and 90, with little wind. The same chance of rain sticks around Wednesday night, with a low of 69.

The heat rises Thursday, when it will be 92 under mostly sunny skies. The low will be 72.

Friday, it’s back to that 30 percent chance of showers and storms, and it will still be hot, with a high of 92 under mostly sunny skies. There will be a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms throughout the early morning hours, with a low of 71.

And it’s more of the same for the upcoming weekend. a 30 percent chance of storms and showers Saturday with mostly sunny skies and a hot high of 93. The low will be 72, with the same chance of rain.

Sunday will be even hotter, 94, with partly sunny skies and a 30 percent chance of storms and showers.
