Your springy and basically quiet weather pattern continues on your Tuesday. We started this morning with some patchy fog and temperatures in the 50s and 60s. This afternoon, there may be enough moisture around to spark one or two showers but nothing substantial; your rain chance is <10% and honestly it’s hardly worth mentioning. Instead, we focus on the warmth! Highs will be back into the low and middle 80s this afternoon with scattered cotton ball (cumulus) clouds floating by. Our quiet and springy weather starts to break down Wednesday, only slightly though. We introduce a slim rain chance in the afternoon for a couple showers and isolated thunderstorms, meanwhile, highs climb into the middle 80s. Throughout Thursday a cold front will dive into the southeast, ahead of it a line of showers and storms will be rolling. That line will likely arrive in our western counties Thursday afternoon and then sweep east through Friday at lunch. We’re still a couple days out so uncertainties remain in how strong those storms might be, but it appears conditions will be at least somewhat favorable for the development of few strong or severe storms. Storms like these need a lot of energy and wind in the upper levels of the atmosphere to stay stronger; most of what’s needed will be well north of here but there’s still a chance some of those ingredients dip a bit more south, so the question marks are evident, we’ll have a better and more concrete idea tomorrow. The storms will be done by Friday afternoon setting us up for a nice beginning to your weekend. The rain train continues Sunday and Monday with another chance at storms. While all of this is happening, highs will be in the 70s and 80s with lows in the 50s & 60s.

Be safe and enjoy your Tuesday!
