Monday Morning: Stormy start; Cool and dry end

Weather

It will be an unseasonably warm day, but cooler temperatures will return.

Today: We are off to a warm star this morning, and by the afternoon, highs will reach the mid to upper 70s. Unfortunately, it will be muggy and stormy at times. A cold front will arrive tonight, but ahead of that front, we’ll see showers and storms. The timing looks to be around midday, but rain chances will increase in the evening. This means that you could have a wet evening commute. Winds will be south-southwesterly at 10-15 mph, but gusts could exceed 30 mph. High near 77.

Tonight: Thunderstorms will continue tonight ahead of that cold front. At times, we could see pockets of heavy rain, but the line of rain will be thin. As we get closer to sunrise, showers will taper, but clouds will linger, keeping our low temperatures warm. Winds will be west-southwesterly at 5-10 mph. Low near 61.

Extended: There is the possibility of a few isolated storms tomorrow. Skies will be mostly cloudy otherwise with temperatures rising into the low 70s. Tomorrow night will be a better chance for scattered showers ahead of a cold front. These showers could continue into Wednesday morning, but by the afternoon, we’ll be dry. We’ll start to feel cooler temperatures overnight as lows fall into the upper 30s to lower 40s. Clouds will begin to clear as well, and we’ll finally see a little bit of sunshine. It will feel like winter on Thursday with highs in the mid 50s and lows in the 30s. We’ll see plenty of sunshine throughout the day on Thursday and again on Friday. Friday, however, will be more seasonable. Highs will reach the lower 60s, which is exactly where our highs should sit. This cool period will come to an abrupt end on Saturday as highs rise into the 70s once again. Clouds will also return, and on Sunday, we could be looking at our next rain chance.
