Tonight will feature ongoing warmth and abundant moisture with an increasing southerly wind. These will keep overnight lows fairly close to average highs for this time of year, mainly in the low to middle 60s. Clouds will be scattered, but thicken heading into Wednesday. A cold front and associated low pressure will spread areas of rain and thunderstorms across the Southeast Wednesday, producing some concern for strong storms. However, the latest indications show more of a focus for severe thunderstorm wind gusts and isolated tornadoes more north and west of the local area. Nonetheless, some storms that pass through the region from west to east tomorrow may contain gusty straight-line winds which may cause localized damage. Highs will reach the upper 70s to near 80 before falling after the front passes. The rest of the week will be clearer and colder.
