The early-evening weather will remain generally cloudy and mild with a few showers, but additional storms will form to the west of the region late tonight and early Wednesday morning. A warm front will move inland, drawing in more warm, moist, and unstable air from the Gulf, fueling the development of a band of thunderstorms ahead of a cold front which will impact the region with storms producing heavy rain and gusty winds. A few storms may become severe with damaging straight-line winds, and an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out. Most of these storms will approach in the early-morning hours, and will move mainly from west to east across the area. Partial clearing is anticipated late Wednesday and temperatures will fall to close to seasonable levels. Overnight temps will range from 65° to 70° and remain in that range until the frontal passage, which will cause temps to fall back into the lower 60s late in the day.
