More clouds will arrive through the overnight and it will remain unseasonably mild with lows in the low to mid 60s. Fog is likely as well.

A cold front will close in on the area Tuesday and this will bring showers and possibly some storms to us in the afternoon and evening. There could possibly be a few strong to severe storms as the front approaches. The chance of severe storms would be highest if several hours of sun are able to develop through the afternoon. Rainfall totals look to range from .25” to .50” with higher amounts likely inside any thunderstorms. Highs tomorrow should be around 83. As the cold front moves through the rain and storms will taper with lows dropping to around 60 Tuesday night.

Wednesday through Friday look quiet for now with an area of high pressure taking control of our weather. It will be cooler, but still seasonable, Wednesday with highs in the upper 70s. Thursday looks a bit warmer under partly cloudy conditions. Expect highs around 80. By Friday, as the high pressure slides farther east, we should see an increase in temperatures. I think low to mid 80s under partly sunny skies Friday looks reasonable. I am also electing to keep us dry for the time being.

Another cold front will move in Saturday and the chance of showers and storms is 40%. Highs should remain in the middle 70s. High pressure looks like it will return for Sunday and Monday with sunshine and clouds and highs in the low 70s.
