A strong cold front is going to cross the region later tonight. Winds ahead of the front continue to be out of the southwest, meaning we will have one more day of warm temperatures with highs reaching the upper 60’s for most locations today.
Showers and thunderstorms will begin late this afternoon as the cold front approaches from the west. Some of the storms could be severe, with hail possible and high winds expected. The rain should taper off by early morning but the clouds will stick around throughout the day tomorrow.
Behind the front is much colder air. I say colder, but in reality we will see a return to near average temperatures for this time of year. Compared to the 70 degree weather we have seen lately, 50 degrees will feel chilly. Temperatures at night will dip into the upper 20’s to mid 30’s. Thursday and Friday will be dry, but the weekend looks a little wet.
It appears that the colder air will stick around into at least next week, so don’t put away those jackets just yet.
