Cold exiting, clouds returning
Though winds will become southerly, incoming clouds working with the cold start to our Wednesday may actually keep thermometers cooler than Tuesday. Look for a high temperature in the lower to middle 60s with skies becoming overcast. The breezes that whipped around some of that pesky pollen on Tuesday have subsided a bit but will become east-southeast at about 10mph.
A warm front will cross the region on Wednesday Night. The result will be a bottom out temperature about 15° warmer than the previous night before temperatures begin to rise prior to dawn Thursday. While skies may not be entirely cloudy on Thursday, there will be more clouds than sun with increasing chances for a shower or thunderstorm. At this time, computer forecast models indicate the best chances for area-wide rain and storms will be Thursday Night into Friday.
We'll keep you posted on the model trends and give you our best timing forecast on rain activity.
