Storms are brewing and tracking across Clay And Putnam counties and set to march through Duval and St. Johns through 6 pm. Look for a good coverage in these areas with a 40% chance of rain through 7 pm.

Many of the storms are hiding in the hazy dusty Saharan air making the smothering heat feel extra horrendous.

Few storms with drier conditions expected in Georgia as temps bake areas in the 90s.

After the thunderstorms cool us down temps ease into the mid 80s tonight then upper 70s early Sunday.

Less rain is expected tomorrow and some of us may not see any rain. Just a 20% between 4-7 pm with partly cloudy skies and above normal heat near 95. The heat index will again top out near 105 in the afternoon.

Monday will have another above average hot day. Drier conditions take over and it’s unlikely we will see any rain. That changes Tuesday as stormy days last the remainder of the work week.
