We are once again watching the radar closely today in the 9 First Warning weather department. It looks like storms will start to develop mainly after 2 p.m. and slowly drift southwest across our viewing area. Some storms may barely move at all. This storm activity will have plenty of moisture to work with, so watch out for torrential downpours, frequent lightning and flash flooding.
Specifically, any rain that falls on top of yesterday's heavy rain from the Norwood Lateral to downtown to Florence could quickly lead to flash flooding.
Temperatures quickly rise to mid 80s by noon. Temperatures eventually hit the upper 80s and low 90s this afternoon. Factoring in humidity, heat index values should end up in the mid 90s.
Tuesday will bring a much quieter day and we'll begin to feel some drier air. While it won't be as muggy, temperatures will still be hot as afternoon highs hit the upper 80s. Expect to see mostly sunny skies on Tuesday with light winds.
A weak cold front will push through the Tri-State late Wednesday into Thursday and this opens the door for much drier air and cooler temperatures that will last into the Labor Day holiday weekend. Highs will even fall into the 70s for some areas Friday.
