First Warning Forecast:
You better fasten your seatbelt because we have a huge temperature plunge on the way.

On Sunday, the mercury soared into the 90s across much of the region. But a strong cold front moving in from Canada will knock 20° off of our high temperatures by Monday afternoon.

That cold front could also spark a stray shower or thunderstorm. But the chances are only 20% on Monday.

Overnight Monday and into Tuesday a few more showers are possible and we could start the day with wet weather.

But the skies should clear in the afternoon and that will allow our temperatures to climb back into the lower 80s.

That warming trend will continue in a big way on Wednesday. In fact, Wednesday could be our hottest feeling day since last summer, with heat index values of 95° or higher.

We are looking at a major pattern shift as we head toward the end of the work week and into the weekend.

That means rain chances will be going up. Scattered showers and storms are likely on Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday. Stay tuned.
