Today and Tomorrow: An incoming cold front in the region may trigger scattered showers and storms later in the day today. This first initial batch of storms are not a guarantee. Later in the night and through Wednesday, showers and storms are likely. Some storms may be strong to severe. All modes of severe weather will be possible. We are under an enhanced risk, a level 3 out of 5, for late today and Wednesday.
The front may be slower-moving and lead to a heavy rain threat lasting into at least Wednesday afternoon or evening. Rain totals through Wednesday night may be between 2 and 4 inches with locally higher amounts. There is a flood watch currently in effect for our area through Wednesday evening. The cold front will pass later on Wednesday and temperatures will drop. Make sure you have multiple ways to get alerts, especially overnight.
Beyond: Behind the front, cold air advection will take hold and winter-like temperatures will return as high temperatures will be at or just below 60 degrees. Sunshine will also return, and overnight lows will fall into the 30s and 40s. There is a chance for some chilly rain or thunderstorms heading into Sunday and Monday.
