Gorgeous day today, but we are tracking the threat of severe weather this evening. Make sure you keep an eye on the sky! A warm front continues to lift over the area this afternoon and evening. The Storm Prediction Center has most of the area under a Level 2 for severe weather, which means scattered strong to severe storms are possible. The biggest threat will be damaging wind gusts and large hail. Any showers or storms that form will move out by tonight. Expect dry and clearing conditions overnight with lows in the upper 50s to near 60.
A weak cold front will move in from the northwest on Wednesday, bringing another chance of storms. The Storm Prediction Center has the entire area under a Level 1 for isolated severe storms. It will be the warmest day of the week with many communities warming into the low 80s.
Another cold front will move through on Thursday, but doesn't have a ton of moisture associated with it. Keeping a 30 percent chance for showers and storms. The Storm Prediction Center has most of the area under a Level 1 for isolated severe storms. Temperatures will be warm again with highs in the upper 70s to near 80.
