MONDAY: We’re tracking a cold start to the day as temperatures drop to near freezing, but we’re quickly going to warm up through the afternoon hours with lots of sunshine to go around. We’ll top out in the upper 60s and low 70s areawide.
TONIGHT: With southerly winds up to 11 mph temperatures only drop into the mid 50s for tonight. This is under clear skies.
EXTENDED: We’re near 80 Tuesday and Wednesday before our next chance of showers and thunderstorms moves in. Sunshine hangs around Tuesday as clouds build on Wednesday. Another strong area of low pressure will move across the Midwest, cooling us down to end the week. As storms increase ahead of the cold front late Wednesday, storms may become strong to severe. The threat includes all modes of severe weather, but large hail looks to be the primary risk. Localized damaging winds and an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out. Behind this, showers and t-storms may linger into Thursday as temperatures dip back into the 60s and eventually the 50s by Friday. Overall, the weekend looks dry with mild temperatures.
