PINE BELT (WDAM) -

It's going to be another warm and humid day across the Pine Belt. Temperatures rose into the low 90s by lunchtime and will top out in the low 90s later on in the day.

You'll want to keep your raincoats and umbrellas handy, though, because we have a 40 percent chance of scattered thunderstorms this evening. The best timing for storms will be through 8 p.m.

Thursday will be pretty much the same as Wednesday. Highs will be in the low to mid-90s, with partly cloudy skies and a 30 percent chance of a hit-or-miss thunderstorm. That 30 percent chance will stay through Saturday before we see better rain chances move in on Sunday. That will stay with us through early next week.

Meanwhile, out into the tropics, Hurricane Chris became a Category 2 overnight with winds of 105 mph. It still poses no threat to the US or Bermuda, but parts of Newfoundland in Canada could see some gale force winds as the system brushes them later on this week. Elsewhere, the tropics remain quiet.
