First Warning Forecast: Tracking more showers and storms

Tracking more showers and storms….The First Warning Storm Team is tracking the threat for more storms in your forecast this week.

As we move through our Monday night, a cold front will approach the area from the southwest, giving way to scattered showers and a few thunderstorms. Some of those storms could be strong to severe.  Heavy rain, localized flooding and gusty winds will be the biggest threats, but we’ll continue to monitor the forecast closely through the night. Low temperatures will be in the low to mid 60s.  Winds will blow in from the south between 15 and 20 mph, with gusts to 30 mph or so.

Showers and isolated storms will be possible very early on Tuesday. Otherwise, as we move through the day, expect a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will soar into the lower 80s under gusty southwest winds. In fact, winds will blow in from the southwest between 15 and 20 mph, with gusts to 30 mph.

On Wednesday, we’ll see mostly sunny skies. Highs will be in the lower 70s.  We’ll see highs in the low 70s on Thursday, just in time for more showers and storms to move in with our next frontal system. Some of those storms could be strong to severe.  We’ll continue to track it for you.
