Tuesday Night: Strong to severe storms Wednesday; Turning much cooler starting Thursday

Weather

Tonight: Mostly dry and mostly cloudy, but a few early morning showers will be possible. Morning lows will be in the 60s. 

Wednesday: A potent system will move into the region. We will need to watch for strong to severe storms. We are under a Slight Risk (threat 2 of 5) for severe weather. We will need to watch for scattered storms developing in front of a squall line around lunchtime through the early afternoon – these storms could spawn a few tornadoes. Then, a line of storms will move in from west to east during the afternoon and early evening ahead of the cold front. Main concern will be damaging wind and heavy rain, but a few tornadoes will also be possible. The severe weather threat should by 8 P.M.. Make sure you have multiple ways to get alerts and warnings. Highs near 80. Overnight temperatures in the 50s. 

Thursday: It will be much cooler and breezy with strong gusts over 25 mph. Clouds may clear in the morning before filling back in in our area by the afternoon. Either way, it will be much cooler. Highs in the lower 70s. Overnight temperatures in the lower 50s.  

Friday: Even cooler with highs only in the upper 60s. It will still be quite breezy. Overnight temperatures in the 40s and 50s.  

Weekend: Very nice and sunny. Highs will be in the low and mid 70s. Very nice weather for Halloween weekend. Overnight temperatures in the 40s and 50s.
