How bad will the weather affect your afternoon commute?

Posted at 11:14 AM, Aug 29, 2018

You could be looking at a wet afternoon commute with the possibility of some thunderstorms. We have been tracking a cold front as it pushes through the mid-west this morning.

That cold front moves through the region later this afternoon and evening and could produce gusty winds and heavy downpours.  The first showers could arrive by 3:00 pm and the greatest risk of thunderstorms will be around the dinner hour.

On the bright side, the rain and cooler air will provide some much needed relief from the heat and humidity of the past few days.
