It is Monday, July 25, 2016.

First Alert Weather Outlook:

Thunderstorms move in this morning as we get close to sunrise, but only for the northern half of the Heartland. These storms are bringing heavy rain, as much as 2 inches per hour. Brian expects them to fizzle out by late morning, but they could rebuild this afternoon. As for the summer heat, it’s backing off a little. No heat advisories are in effect for today, but it will still be very warm and humid with the heat index in the 90s and 100s. FIRST ALERT: The weekend is looking stormy.
