Tracking showers, storms and cooler temps….The sunny, warm weather we’ve seen over the past few days is coming to an end. We’re tracking showers, storms and cooler temps on the way.

All eyes are on a frontal system to our north. This front will slide in as we move through our late Tuesday night, giving way to scattered showers and possibly a few thunderstorms. Rain and isolated storms will likely continue overnight into Wednesday morning. Low temperatures will be fairly mild, into the lower 60s.

The front will stall over the area through Wednesday and Thursday, giving way to unsettled weather. In fact, on Wednesday, expect mostly cloudy skies and areas of rain here and there through the day. An isolated thunderstorm is possible. High temperatures will cool into the upper 60s.

On Thursday, we’ll see much of the same, with mostly cloudy skies and scattered rain. However, a few thunderstorms could mix in as an area of low pressure moves in along the stalled front. Highs will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.  A couple of showers could linger into Friday, but we’re not expecting a washout. Highs will be in the lower 70s.

Tonight: Partly to Mostly Cloudy. Scattered Showers & Storms (30%). Low temperatures in the low 60s. Winds: SW 10-15 mph.

Wednesday: Mostly Cloudy with Showers (40%). Isolated Storm. Cooler. High temperatures in the upper 60s. Winds: N/E 5-15 mph.
