(KFVS) -

Good morning, it is Wednesday, May 9.

First Alert Forecast

There is a line of storms to our west this morning. Laura Wibbenmeyer says she doesn’t expect severe weather, this morning, but the storms will have thunder and lightning.

Outside of that, it will be windy and warm. We will be under a lake wind advisory, later with gusts up to 30 mph. This afternoon, we could see another round of strong, isolated storms.

That threat is mostly in our northern counties and the greatest threat is damaging winds.

Heat and humidity fill in behind the storms and stick with us for a few days. It will last into the weekend, which Laura thinks will be mostly dry for Mother’s day.

A new system will move in Sunday evening. That system could stall out and bring rain chances for several days.
