Rounds of Storms
While a few breaks of sun may occur, skies will feature more clouds for much of the day. High temperatures will finally return to average, in the lower 70s, as southerly winds will transport milder air and moisture into the region. Speaking of those winds, once again they will be frisky, on the order of 10-20mph with some higher gusts. A round of showers and storms is expected to develop this afternoon and persist into the overnight hours. A few of the storms could be strong with heavy rain and gusty winds. Precipitation chances, or POPs, are at 70% meaning there is a 70% chance any given point in the viewing area will find measurable rainfall today. Tonight the scattered showers and storms will continue and it will be muggy with lows in the middle 60s.
Showers and storms will temporarily break off on Friday Morning. With a few peeks of sun and a souped up lower level, thermometers will quickly jump through the 70s and eclipse 80°. The added juice will aid the development of another round of showers and storms Friday Afternoon and night as a cold front arrives. The front will cross the area on Saturday Morning eliminating the rain, humidity and will clear our skies for the weekend. Saturday and Sunday will have sunny afternoons with highs in the low 70s.
