Warm and humid today, with storms developing late

Posted: Updated:

Good Wednesday.  We have settled into a warm and humid weather pattern with temps running about 10 degrees above normal.  This afternoon we can expect a high of 86 degrees with partly cloudy skies and a slight chance for a passing shower or storm through the afternoon.

Tonight, a front will press into the warm, humid weather and bring more widespread showers and storms through Thursday morning.  Expect rain and storms for the Thursday morning commute.  The severe risk is low, but we will need to be watchful for damaging winds and small hail with some of the stronger storms.  I would expect 1/2" to 1" of rain through tomorrow morning.  By Thursday afternoon, the sun will be shining, but we will also remain warm and humid with a high of 86.

Friday will be warm and sunny as the high reaches a ridiculous 87.

The weekend looks a little unsettled.  We will be warm Saturday with the high reaching 85.  We will also have a chance for a few showers and storms through the afternoon.  The rain chance will increase greatly Sunday with a front moving in.  It will keep us cooler as the high climbs to 78.  That will usher in a period of cooler weather.  Next week highs will remain near 80 at least through the first half of the week.

    Good Thursday.  We have another bitterly cold start today with temps in the low to mid 10s this morning.  Fortunately, our winds are fairly calm this morning so wind chill won't be as much of an issue heading out.

    The roads will be very slick including interstates and main city roads Tuesday night because of these cold temperatures. So travel should be discouraged.
