Calming Down After Wild Storms

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

A round of thunderstorms earlier today produced street flooding, hail, lightning strikes and a few reports of wind damage. Now things are starting to calm down out there with some lingering areas of rain and a few leftover rumbles of thunder. After 9-10 PM the rest of the night will be dry but warm and humid with areas of patchy fog.

Classic summer weather continues Thursday and Friday with hazy sun, humid air and highs in the 80s. Each afternoon, scattered thunderstorms are possible but they will be less numerous than they were today (Wednesday). While most of the state will stay dry, any storms that do develop will be slow moving and could cause a lot of rain to fall over a short period of time. Showers and storms will be more widespread on Saturday as a cold front approaches. This will be followed by cooler, breezy and less humid weather starting Sunday.
