Warm, windy, and a threat for severe storms… We will see mostly cloudy skies today with a few glimpses of sun possible. Rain chances will be low for most of the day, mainly just drizzle and light showers. A line of rain and storms will move through from NW to SE this evening and tonight. Strong to severe storms are possible. It will be even warmer today with highs climbing to near 80, about 15 degrees above normal for this time of year. Winds will also crank up today, SW at 10 to 20 and gusts to near 30 mph.
The line of showers and storms will move out tonight and clouds will clear out overnight. Lows will fall into the mid 50s tonight and winds will start to relax.
We will see mostly sunny skies on Wednesday with highs in the upper 60s to near 70. Clouds will start to build in late in the day and through the evening. Expect a mix of partly to mostly cloudy skies on Thursday with an isolated shower possible. Highs will drop to near 60 on Thursday.
Our next cold front will move in on Friday, giving us another chance for rain and building in a cool down for the weekend. Expect highs in the mid 60s on Friday with mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers. We will see more sunshine this weekend but highs will only reach the mid 50s.
