It’s rare we get a taste of fall in August.  But we will this week.  Before the respite, rain and storms are likely today.  There’s an 80% chance of showers and thunderstorms today, especially this afternoon and evening.  Some of these storms could become strong to possibly severe with the main concern being damaging winds, locally heavy rainfall, and flooding.  The greatest threat of the strong thunderstorms will be along and east of I-75.

Expect a muggy, very windy day today with limited sunshine and a high of 81-degrees.  Rain chances remain tonight.

Drier air moves in Wednesday chasing the chances of rain away.  The high hovers around 80-degrees tomorrow with more clouds than sun.

Average highs and lows for Campbell County for this time of year are 85 and 69-degrees.  We’ll be below those averages through Friday.

Thursday is going to bring a real taste of fall with very low humidity and a high-low of 79 and 58 with a sky full of sunshine and clear skies at night.

Higher humidity and warmer temperatures return Friday.  Weather for Cougar Football at Dossett Stadium should be ideal.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 08/21/2018-6AM)
