The main threats for any storms that turn severe are damaging winds and flash flooding. Hail is also possible. While the tornado threat is low, an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

 

 

STORMY EVENING

Strong to severe thunderstorms are likely across the region through the evening.

A storm system approaching from the west continues to bring the threat for severe weather this afternoon and evening. Storms could still be strong to severe. The primary threats continue to be damaging winds, hail, and locally heavy downpours that can cause areas of flooding. The tornado threat is still small, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. Through the night, scattered showers and thunderstorms slowly fade. It’s another muggy and warm night, with lows in the 60s to lower 70s. The cold front hangs around Monday, so showers and thunderstorms are possible again. This chance dwindles through the afternoon. Highs are near 80. Less humid air rushes in late Monday and skies begin to dry out.

 

 

COOLING OFF AGAIN

The cold front clears the region by Tuesday. Cooler air rushes in behind it and brings more days with below average high and low temperatures. Tuesday is the coolest day, with partly sunny skies and highs in the middle to upper 70s. Wednesday the area slowly warms into the upper 70s to lower 80s under plenty of sunshine.

 

 

BACK TO AVERAGES

Thursday temperatures continue to edge closer to seasonable averages, and the sunshine continues. Friday, the warmth and some humidity return, but it stays dry. Saturday and Sunday, there’s a chance for a few isolated thunderstorms, but the day looks mainly dry. Highs are in the middle 80s.

 

 

Have a great week!
