Tracking widespread rain and storms tonight into Wednesday

TONIGHT: Showers and storms likely with lows remaining in the lower 60s. 1-1.5" of rain is possible with overnight rain.

TOMORROW: Plenty of dry time with cloud cover holding on. Isolated strong storms with wind, hail, and the threat of a tornado possible. Highs in the upper 70s.

EXTENDED: Showers and a few thunderstorms will start working into the area late this afternoon into tonight, bringing widespread rain overnight. A warm front will begin lifting north by tomorrow morning, pulling in warmer air and a little more energy to trigger a few storms ahead of the cold front by afternoon. There will be plenty of dry time between Wednesday and Thursday, but scattered showers and thunderstorms won't completely exit the area until Thursday night. A few storms may be strong on Wednesday afternoon ahead of the cold front, especially along and east of Highway 63. All modes of severe weather will be possible in any strong storms that can develop, including 1" hail, 50-60 mph winds, and an isolated tornado. Highs reach the mid-upper 70s on Wednesday. As the cold front works east on Wednesday night, temperatures will drop into the upper 60s on Thursday with clouds hanging around. Rain amounts will range between 1-2" through Thursday. As low pressure exits east Thursday night into Friday, we'll finally see some more sunshine on Friday as temperatures reach the mid-upper 70s. The holiday weekend looks warmer than average with highs gradually increasing from the low to upper 80s as an upper level high pressure ridge sets in. Rain chances look low, but if we do see showers it would likely be late Sunday into Monday across northern sections of the area.
