Tracking a warmup into severe storm chances by late week
TODAY: Temperatures near freezing this morning will warm into the upper 50s with partly cloudy skies and an increasingly south wind through the day. A stationary front will wobble nearby, just north of I-70 through the day, bringing a brief wind shift for some this afternoon from the north. This will keep some in the lower 50s.
TONIGHT: Skies remain partly cloudy, with variable winds at the surface overnight. Those who keep south winds in the southern half of the region, will stay near 40 overnight, with those in north flow in the 30s.
EXTENDED: The stationary front turns to a warm front on Thursday, lifting north of us by midday. This will bring more significant warmth, putting our temperatures in the upper 60s. Showers and storms may approach from the south late Thursday evening, before rain chances grow overnight into Friday. Scattered showers and storms continue through Friday morning. This round will come to an end around midday, ahead of round two which comes along a cold front. These storms will have severe potential including the potential for hail, winds, and tornadoes. Some storms earlier in the day may even have some wind and hail potential. Temperatures will be warm on Friday, reaching into the 70s. Saturday will be cooler and drier, with a high in the 50s. Sunday brings more warmth, and we'll hold onto 70s through early next week, where we encounter more thunderstorm chances.
