Warm and windy today, strong storms overnight / Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

Good Monday.  A cold front moving our way will give us dramatic changes in our weather over the next few days.

Today will be warm and windy.  Ahead of the front, winds will blow from the SSE at 10-20 mph.  That strong southerly flow will allow us to get up to about 80 degrees.  While I can't rule out a stray shower or two today,  the bulk of the rain will move in Tuesday.

Tonight, showers and thunderstorms will move through just ahead of the front.  The primary concerns with these storms will be heavy rain which could lead to flooding.  I am also worried about damaging winds associated with these storms.  Rainfall amounts widespread will be about 2", but some spots could exceed 3".  Combined with the heavy rains from Sunday, that could pose a problem.

Tuesday, look for the showers and storms to continue through the first half of the day.  Once again, the biggest threats during that time will be from flooding rains and gusty winds.  We will only reach about 74 degrees Tuesday afternoon.

As the low pressure bringing the nasty weather moves out, we could even see a few showers lingering behind the front Wednesday into Thursday.  It will be cooler, though.  Highs Wednesday and Thursday will only climb into the upper 60s with lows in the 40s and 50s.

The weekend looks good.  We will have partly cloudy skies.  Lows will start in the upper 40s.  Highs will reach the low 70s.
