Forecast: Showers And Thunderstorms Tuesday Afternoon

Soggy end to the weekend; cooling off this work week

Heavy rains, lightning and small hail are the main threats from any storm activity today.

Thursday and Friday should remain sunny, although there's another chance for showers and thunderstorms this weekend.

Some storms may be strong with damaging winds and flood-inducing downpours. The high will be around 88.

We are welcoming scattered rainfall this Sunday morning because rain totals are trending about two inches below average from June 1!

The mugginess will begin to edge back in again Saturday night with the potential for showers Sunday into the first part of next week. The weather service says the Lehigh Valley will likely fall short of the heat index thresholds for a heat advisory, but temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s until those storms roll through.

But as you can see from the forecast model above, strong storms are still possible SE of Richmond from 8-10 p.m. Wednesday's high will be in the mid-80s. The worst of the storms is expected to last until 7 p.m.

Tue: High: 88 Low: 71 Becoming mostly sunny. At this point, we are not sure if showers will arrive in the morning or if they'll hold off until the afternoon. Thursday afternoon will be hotter in the upper 80s.

A very humid, tropical air mass will be in place through today. Cloud cover along with an east or northeasterly flow should keep highs closer to 80 degrees. There was another 10-day heat wave in the summer of 2016 that lasted from July 21 through July 30.
