Clouds will continue to build this evening and tonight as a developing low pressure system and cold front move eastward. Showers and thunderstorms will begin after midnight tonight. A few strong and possibly severe storms are possible from 2am through sunrise tomorrow morning as a line advances from west to east through the forecast area. The main threats with these storms will be damaging wind gusts and flash flooding, with a flash flood watch in effect for most of the forecast area (only excluding far eastern coastal counties). Heavy rain and thunderstorms will continue through noon tomorrow, and a few showers will continue into the early evening.

As the storm system exits tomorrow night, a high pressure system will usher in a blast of much cooler air. Low temperatures waking up Wednesday morning will be in the high 30s to low 40s. Plentiful sunshine will allow highs to warm to the low 70s in the afternoon. Clouds and humidity will return on Thursday, with highs expected in the mid 70s and lows in the mid 50s.

Another storm system will bring a 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms on Friday (especially in the afternoon hours), and high temperatures will rebound to the low 80s. An unsettled weather pattern will continue through the weekend, with a 20% chance of rain on Saturday and Easter Sunday and highs in the low 80s. Partly cloudy skies will keep low temperatures near 60.
