TUESDAY: A quiet start to your day with mostly to partly sunny skies in the forecast. A cool start in the 50s will trend toward an warm finish in the lower and middle 80s this afternoon. Tonight, expect mostly to partly clear skies with lows around 60.
WEDNESDAY: Expect a mix of sun and clouds ahead of our next storm system due into the region for the overnight hours into early Thursday. Highs will make a run for the middle and upper 80s. Expect an aggressive wind out of the south throughout the day around 15 - 25 mph, with gusts to 40 mph possible. Shower and storms chances will increase after sunset; a few of the storms could be on the strong to severe side with the main threat being strong winds and large hail; an isolated tornado can't be ruled out.
LATE WEEK: Storms will continue to exit the area through Thursday morning – bringing with it slightly cooler air and brightening skies through the afternoon hours. Highs Thursday will top out in the upper 70s and lower 80s. The heat really cranks up again through Friday and Saturday – topping out near 90° both days with a chance for a few hit and miss storms.
SUNDAY / MONDAY: Another storm system will knock our doorstep by overnight Saturday into Sunday, bringing another strong to severe storm threat to the region. In addition to the possibility of strong storms, heavy rain with localized flooding will also be a concern. Highs on Sunday will only manage the lower 80s. We'll trend into the middle 70s for highs by Monday afternoon with mostly sunny skies.
