Tracking warmer temps and thunderstorms….Get ready for another wild ride with our weather this week.

As we move through our Monday night, expect mostly cloudy skies across the area.  A few isolated showers are possible, along with some patchy areas of fog. It’s going to be mild tonight, with low temperatures in the low and mid 50s.

On Tuesday, a few scattered showers are possible, but we’re not expecting a washout. We’ll see some filtered sunshine through the day. Highs will warm into the mid 70s. A few more showers may move in late Tuesday, but our best rain chances for the week will arrive Wednesday.

A strong cold front will move in Wednesday from the west. We’ll start the day dry, but by evening, all eyes will be to the sky as the front slides in, giving way to scattered showers and possibly severe storms Wednesday night.  Some rain may linger into early Thursday morning. Highs on Wednesday will climb to near 80. After the front passes through, our high temperatures will drop into the 50s for the rest of the work week.


This Afternoon: Sun and Clouds. Warmer. Highs in the mid 60s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.

Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Isolated to Scattered Showers (20-30%). Lows in the low 50s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.
