Thursday will be a WKYT First Alert Severe Weather Day. A potent storm system dives in from the northwest and will bring the potential for severe storms and heavy rainfall.
Damaging winds and large hail are the primary threats. In addition to the severe threat, heavy rainfall may cause local flash flooding into early Friday.
Showers and storms will slowly taper off from west to east later Friday with much cooler air filtering in for the weekend. Highs on Saturday and Sunday will range from 75-80 in most areas with sunny skies. Lows will be in the 50s.
Temps stay a little below normal into the first few days of August.
