Warmest day of 2021 so far expected today, with thunderstorm chances this evening

/ May 4, 2021 at 6:57 AM

After the high topped out at 88° yesterday, we look to take at least one step closer to 90° today with another very summer-like day ahead. Humid air will allow heat indices to head up into the mid-90s for the first time this year. We’ll stay dry for much of the day absent any triggers for thunderstorm development, with our best chance of showers and thunderstorms coming later this evening (much like last night). Once again, we’ll be looking to our west throughout the day to nail down timing of any showers and thunderstorms that impact the area. Much like last night, there will be a damaging wind risk as well with the strongest thunderstorms, so keep an ear out to forecast updates throughout the day.
