Warming up today, storms return Wednesday night


Warming for a couple days

The temperatures today will be in the low 70s most locations and we will be dealing with a mixture of clouds and sunshine.  The overall pattern will call for a pleasant flow of wind from the southwest near 5 – 10 mph and will import temperatures more in line with late April. Look for the quiet pattern to continue into Wednesday morning but change dramatically overnight into Thursday.

Once again there is a stormy pattern evolving during the overnight time frame.  This time it will be late Wednesday into Thursday morning as a line of storms will accompany a cold front.  The timing of the event is still a bit under construction but there seems to be a high chance that we will see the winds picking up late Wednesday afternoon ahead of the line, then the line of heavy rain arrives after sunset and exits before sunrise.  Not much more to nail down at this moment, but it could be easily adjusted to closer to midnight Wednesday into Thursday.  Currently the line looks to be mainly a rain maker but the potential for strong winds to push out of ahead of the line is very likely.  There should be some flooding issues as well, but since it will be a relatively fast mover, I expect the flooding to be confined to flood prone regions rather than a widespread flood event.  That too will need to be adjusted as well.  Thus far the Storm Prediction Center does not have us in any risk for severe storms but they will adjust several times today and we will keep you updated.

Thursday morning will be soaked and the rain will be exiting before sunrise, but there is still a chance for some lingering rain in the morning hours.  Temperatures will drop back to the middle sixties after the frontal passage and we will drop into a cooler regime for both Thursday and Friday.  High pressure takes over Friday and we should stay dry for the weekend.  Highs will get into the 70s again Saturday and approach the 80s on Sunday (and may get there) before some rain is slated to arrive Sunday night into Monday.

Stay Safe and healthy.
