Midday UpdateAugust 2nd, 2013 at 12:44 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
Some showers & t’storms have occurred along & north of the U.S. 24 so far today.
These are pulling away & sunshine is increasing from west to east.
That said, increased high temperature today to 82-87, given more sun. Southwest winds will gust as high as 29 mph. It is already 82.8 as of 1 p.m. at WLFI, so temperatures into the mid & upper 80s certainly seem attainable, given all the sunshine.
A few more showers & t’storms will develop today. This, with showers & t’storms currently in Iowa, will increase shower/t’storm potential later this afternoon-evening & especially tonight.
