While this evening will be rather uneventful weatherwise, with scattered clouds and mild temperatures, tomorrow will feature building cloudiness, warm readings, and increasing rain and storm development. The Atlantic high-pressure system will move more into the ocean, allowing the local atmosphere to be primed for easier cloud formation and development of rain and storms by later in the afternoon. Lows tonight with breaks of clear sky will fall only to the lower 60s. Highs Thursday climb back into the low and mid 80s before we transition to a cloudier sky late afternoon. Initial showers and storms will be scattered in variety and may be capable of producing heavy rain, wind gusts, and hail.
By late Thursday, the effects of an approaching cold front may add some strength to individual storms, increasing the severe weather chances. A broader band of strong storms will likely impact the region by Friday morning with damaging gusty winds. Isolated tornadoes are possible, but not the primary risk late Thursday through early Friday.
