A few storms on the way

Posted: Updated:

A few sprinkles will greet us this morning, but nothing major. What little sunshine we see pop temperatures close to 70.

A line of showers and storms roll through the area this afternoon between 4-6. Some of the thunderstorms could be on the stronger side with damaging gusts and hail the primary threats. The cold front pushes all the rain out of the area by 8 this evening.

Temperatures take a nosedive into the mid 30s by tomorrow morning and we'll only warm into the mid 50s tomorrow afternoon. Winds will also gust from the NW between 25-35 mph.

A slow warming trend is expected to end the week, culminating in temperatures topping out near 70 this weekend. A stark contrast from last weekend's temperatures in the low to mid 40s.

TUESDAY:  Good deal of cloud cover. A few strong storms are possible. High: 70

Tuesday Night: Clearing up. Lows dip to 36.

WEDNESDAY: Becoming mostly sunny. High: 54.

Wednesday Night: Mostly clear with lows near 33.

    Heat and humidity continue

    The bulk of the rain has been well to our west today and will stay that way for the duration of tonight and tomorrow. We'll only see an isolated shower or storm the next few days due to most of the tropical moisture lifting well north of us. That's all due to an area of low pressure in the upper Midwest that is sucking it all north. This will leave us on the warm and humid side of things, which is why isolated showers and storms are in the forecast the next few days.
