WARM, STEAMY, & STORMY: It’s another warm and stuffy start across the region ahead of the next cold front. A wave of showers and some rumbles moves through during the morning hours, and they could slow some down on the roads with some heavier downpours. Temperatures being in the 60s to near 70 degrees. A break from showers and storms for most comes during the midday hours. However, the very warm and stuffy air combined with the approaching front quickly puts us at risk for afternoon showers and thunderstorms. There’s a small chance for a couple strong to severe storms, with damaging winds as the primary threat. Some heavier downpours could also bring some localized areas of flooding. Afternoon temperatures peak in the middle to upper 80s. The overnight period features more by way of shower and thunderstorm activity.
