WEDNESDAY: We’ll be tracking some sunshine to start, but a cold front is on the way this afternoon. Temperatures ahead of that boundary look to top out in the upper 80’s. As the front pushes in it looks to fire up some scattered storms between 5-10 PM.
TONIGHT: Those will fizzle shortly after sunset, leaving the rest of the night quiet. Lows will bottom out in the upper 60’s.
EXTENDED: Some slightly more enjoyable weather is waiting for us on the other side of these storms. Highs tomorrow will top out in the middle 80’s. That’s replaced by some stuffy highs in the low 90’s on Friday with a heat index nearing 100. Storms are expected to develop late Friday night and push in early Saturday morning. If these hold together overnight, they could pose a straight-line wind threat, especially north of I-70. Another round of storms looks likely Saturday evening as a slow-moving system churns through the region. More showers and storms will be possible into Sunday, but look less widespread. All of these rain chances look to keep highs in the low to mid 80’s this weekend. It looks like we won’t be able to shake the rain threat even into next week.
