A warm front moving north across the region has enabled temperatures to rise into the 60s, where they’ll hold overnight. A few showers and thunderstorms are moving in from the west, and will produce torrential downpours and frequent lightning. One or two storms may also produce gusty winds and hail. Most of the rain should be gone by the morning commute.
Monday will be a much warmer day, with developing southwest winds and some sunshine. Afternoon highs will be in the low and mid 80s. An approaching cold front may trigger a few more scattered afternoon and evening storms. A few of these could produce strong, gusty winds and hail.
The front will slow its progress as it becomes parallel to the upper level flow. This means it will hang around on Tuesday, with a few waves of low pressure inducing showers and thunderstorms across the region. Highs on Tuesday will be close to 70°.
Our weather will remain somewhat unstable the second half of the week, as an upper low level moves in from the Ohio Valley. We’ll be a bit below normal temperature-wise, with highs mainly in the mid and upper 60s. Overnight lows will dip into the upper 40s and low 50s. While not all areas will see rain every day, there will be a few scattered showers and thunderstorms around each afternoon and evening.
It appears we may have a completely dry day to start next weekend, but another front approaching later Sunday may trigger a shower or thunderstorm later in the day.
