TUESDAY: Grab the umbrellas as you head out the door today; off and on showers will move through as our next system approaches the region. Expect mainly cloudy skies amid those shower chances; temperatures will sneak into the 60s by late in the day as warm, moist air flows in from the Gulf. Rain chances will stay elevated overnight, with the possibility of strong storms moving in after midnight.
WEDNESDAY: A squall line will approach the area through the morning commute; bringing with it heavy downpours and the possibility of a few strong to severe storms. Localized flooding, gusty winds, hail and a spin-up tornado can’t be ruled out. Showers, storms will ease out of the area through mid-day; leading to falling temperatures – falling from the 60s early, to the 40s and 50s through the day. We’ll fall back into the 30s by early Thursday under variably cloudy skies.
LATE WEEK: High clouds will stream through Thursday – with cooler air behind the front. Expect highs to top out in the 50s Thursday afternoon with fresh northeast breeze. We’ll fall back into the 30s again by early Friday. South breezes will come back quickly, bringing the moisture and warmth back to round out the week. Expect partly to variably cloudy skies with highs in the 60s Friday. Scattered showers may sneak in by the end of the day.
WEEKEND AND BEYOND: An active pattern takes hold through the weekend, with several southern stream disturbances moving through – these disturbances will kick up rain chances throughout the weekend – at times, being heavy. Highs will be warm, in the 60s amid the periods of rain. Rain chances will subside a bit into next week – highs will hold in the 60s Monday and Tuesday.
