Bryan's Tuesday forecast, May 4

Our severe threat is much lower today, although thunderstorms should redevelop later this afternoon.

It’ll feel warm and humid as highs reach the mid 70s under mostly cloudy skies. For the middle of the week, high pressure builds across the Midwest.

Afternoon temperatures will run near 70°F which is slightly cooler than the May average.

Very little rain is in the forecast until we get to Mother’s Day Weekend.

Another 1-2″ rain is possible by early next week.

Meteorologist Bryan McCormick has your forecast coming up at the top of the hour.
