Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today & Tonight: A cold front will begin to approach from the northwest. Highs will be in the mid low and mid 60s. Rain chances increase Wednesday night. Rain chance during the day is around 20%, but rain chances ramp up Wednesday night/early Thursday to around 70%. A few thunderstorms are possible, but organized severe weather is not anticipated. We cannot rule out a few strong storms. Morning temperatures will be in the mid and upper 40s.

Thursday: Wrap-around moisture associated with the departing low pressure system will likely lead to more cloud cover. Afternoon temperatures will only be in the 50s. Overnight temperatures will be in the upper 30s.

Friday: Much colder with highs only in the upper 40s to lower 50s. Clouds and sun. Overnight temperatures in the low and mid 30s. Light freeze possible.

Weekend: Chilly this weekend with highs only in the 40s and 50s. Partly cloudy on Saturday, becoming mostly cloudy on Sunday. Rain chances return Sunday night. Currently, rain chance is around 50%, but we will need to adjust accordingly as it gets closer. We will have to watch the position and strength of a Gulf low pressure system, amount of moisture in place, and timing. Depending on these factors, this could bring wintry precipitation to portions of our area. Currently, looks to be a cold rain mixed with some flakes. It’s way too soon to talk specifics. It’s only something to watch for now. Stay tuned!

Next Week: Cold to start, but temperatures will regulate back into the lower 60s by the end of the work week.
