Weather Forecast for July 7, 2014

Storm chances increase late this week.
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) -- Hot 90s return this week, and your storm chances spike late this week as well.  The next few days will feature 90s for highs with Tuesday potentially being the hottest day in the mid 90s.  We'll see a mix of sun and clouds and small storm chances, so don't plan your day around the possibility of rain.  However, it never hurts to keep an umbrella in the car for those pesky pop-up storms.

The biggest concern, outside of the heat, is the UV index which is near extreme levels.  11+ would be considered extreme, and the EPA forecasts a 10 for us.  The UV index reflects the risk of ultraviolet overexposure, so the best thing to do would be avoid outdoor activities between 10 AM and 4 PM, and make sure you use a broad-spectrum sunscreen that's at least SPF 30, if not higher.

Later this week, a front is forecasted to move into the area and hang around here for a couple of days, so storm chances increase Thursday and Friday.  It looks like the system will move out of the area this weekend, bringing storm chances down.  For those of you who hate the 90s, this rain should help moderate temperatures, though there is a risk for severe weather.
