WEDNESDAY: For the majority of your Wednesday, the weather will just be warm and breezy. Expect a mix of sun and clouds with highs pushing into the lower and middle 80s. Winds will get aggressive, with gusts pushing 20-30 mph. A few storms may flare up during the afternoon hours; while many of the “trick-or-treat” hours, remain quiet and dry. After 10-11 PM, storm chances will begin to go up from west to east as cold front pushes into the area.
THURSDAY: Storms will likely impact the region through the start of Thursday; some of which could be strong to severe. The main risk coming from strong winds and localized flooding, but a brief spin-up tornado and hail can’t be ruled out. We advise everyone remain weather aware through Thursday morning. Highs will top out in the 60s to near 70; dropping late in the day a second front pushes through. Lows will drop into the 40s by early Friday.
EXTENDED RANGE: Expect clouds to gradually clear through Friday evening as our storm system exits to the east. Highs will stay in the middle 60s Friday – rebounding with mostly sunny skies by Friday to near 70°. A few showers are possible Sunday and Monday ahead of our next storm system due into the region by late Monday into Tuesday. Highs will make their way back into the middle to upper 70s ahead of the next storm threat.
