Warm and humid conditions will continue during the evening hours. Lows will be in the mid 60s and a few spotty showers can’t be ruled out later on tonight.
Wednesday is expected to be partly to mostly cloudy, breezy, and warm. Plan on high temperatures in the low to possibly mid 80s. Breezy southeasterly winds between 10 and 20 mph will be common along with some higher gusts. A few stray showers may develop during the day but they are going to be the exception to the rule.
Showers and storms will increase in coverage late Wednesday night and Thursday morning. The latest data suggest that a line of thunderstorms will march across the area bringing the threat of high winds, some hail, and torrential rainfall. The overall tornado threat looks to be on the low side at this point but we’ll continue to monitor the situation. Between 2″ and 3″ of rain may fall during the event. If we’re lucky the storms will be in a weakening phase by the time they reach our area.
Cooler & drier air will filter back in for Friday and Saturday as high pressure moves in from the Great Plains. Conditions look like they will warm up again late in the weekend and early next week.
