Tracking our next chance of showers and storms….We’re dry and cool tonight and tomorrow, but more showers and storms are in our near future.

As we move through our Wednesday night, expect a few clouds, but bundle up! Temperatures will drop into the mid 40s. A few areas of patchy fog could develop overnight.

On Thursday, some of us may start the day with a little fog. Otherwise, we’ll see a mix of clouds and sunshine. Highs will only reach the mid 50s by afternoon, with breezy winds from the northeast between 10 and 15 mph.

By Friday, all eyes will be on our next cold front. That front will sweep through the area through the day on Friday, giving way to scattered showers and storms. Some of those storms could be strong and possibly severe. We’ll watch it closely. Highs are expected to rebound into the upper 60s to lower 70s.  A few showers will likely linger into early Saturday, but most of the weekend looks dry. Highs will be in the mid and upper 60s on Saturday. We’ll see highs in the mid 60s with sunshine on Sunday.

Tonight: A Few Clouds. Chilly. Lows in the mid 40s. Winds: NE 5-10 mph.

Thursday: Partly Cloudy and Cool.  Breezy.  Highs in the mid 50s. Winds: NE 10-15 mph.
