Tracking warming temperatures bringing severe storms late week
TODAY: A stationary front overhead is barely noticeable with abundant sunshine this afternoon. As we're on this boundary's southern, warmer side, highs will rebound into the upper 50s today.
TONIGHT: Skies remain partly cloudy overnight, with variable winds at the surface. Those who keep south winds in the southern half of the region will stay near 40, with those in the north flow fall to the 30s.
EXTENDED: The stationary front lifts north as a warm front into midweek, putting highs into the 60s Wednesday and Thursday. Showers and storms may approach from the south late Thursday evening, before rain chances grow overnight into Friday. This first round will come to an end around midday Friday, ahead of round two which is bolstered by a cold front. These afternoon storms will have severe potential including the risk of hail, high winds, and tornadoes. Saturday will be cooler and drier behind the front, with a high in the 50s. Sunday brings more warmth, and we'll hold onto 70s into early next week, where we encounter more thunderstorm chances.
