A broken line(s) of storms will fire to our northwest & sink southeastward into our area Thursday evening-early overnight.
The storms & a couple to few isolated severe storms are possible here in the 7 p.m. to 2 a.m.
Otherwise, it looks like a breezy to windy (southwest 15-30 mph), warmer & eventually more humid day with skies becoming partly cloudy. Highs will surge to 84-87.
It will feel more like 87-90 later in the day.
MARGINAL RISK of severe weather is up for Peru to West Lafayette to Williamsport line & northwestward.
SLIGHT RISK is up just west & northwest of the area.
Potential is there for SLIGHT & MARGINAL RISK to be expanded east & southeastward.
With clouds/sun & slow decrease in the humidity, highs Friday will run 79-86 with a couple isolated showers/storms (20%) possible.
A few more are possible Friday night to Saturday (30%) with 60 to the 60s Friday night & 70s Saturday.
Cold front Thursday of next week with potential of a line of storms here with some severe risk will likely push the remnants of Dorian over Tennessee & Georgia eastward & northeastward.
Dorian will likely make landfall as a major hurricane (at least Category 3, according to NHC) near Melborne, Florida & track south of Orlando. The potential is there for a second landfall in the Florida Panhandle, but that is a little unclear. Regardless, it will be pulled northward/north-northeastward into Georgia.
Ahead of our front & trough, it will heat up Monday-Wednesday of next week with increasing humidity. With 87-90 Tuesday & Wednesday with southwest winds 15-25 mph, heat indices may reach 91-95.
Much cooler weather may arrive after that cold front with highs in the 70s, folllowed by warmth, humidity & frequent storms mid-September.
