Storm Threat Wednesday With Dry Weather After

It was a cooler start this morning with temperatures in the upper 50°s for the morning commute.  We even had a little bit of fog this morning because of the cooler temperatures.  A low pressure system out west is bringing in a weak inflow of warmth and moisture, and combined with the clear skies and sunshine temperatures warmed up more rapidly.  The weak heat and moisture inflow will build some clouds, but we'll still see a good amount of sunshine.  We also have a high pressure system out east, which will keep the heat inflow weak and prevent temperatures from getting too hot.  We'll see temperatures in the upper 70°s this afternoon with a little less humidity.

That high pressure influence will last through the late-night hours, but will move out during the overnight where the low pressure system to the west will be able to strengthen its heat inflow.  This will keep temperatures warmer during the overnight in the upper 60°s, and increase our cloud cover early tomorrow morning.

A cold front extending from a low pressure system up north will makes its approach during the day tomorrow.  It will help build cloud cover in the morning, and bring us a chance for showers around 1pm.  By 4pm, it will move into the Stateline area and develop some fairly strong thunderstorms.  We are under a Slight Risk for severe weather tomorrow late afternoon and early evening.  The main threats will be strong winds, and up to half dollar size hail is possible.  The storms will die down around 1am Thursday, with some lingering rain afterwards until around 4am.

The front will move out around 7am, where high pressure moves in from the north to keep us cool and dry with temperatures in the mid to upper 70°s for the rest of the week, and even the weekend.
