It’s a very wet start to Tuesday. Plan on some ponding on the roads during your commute. Heavy showers along with thunderstorms moved in late last night. Rain will continue through the morning before getting a temporary break this afternoon.
Along with the rainfall, we will be flirting with near-record warmth today. A warm front lifting north is ushering warm air along breezy, southerly winds. The record stands at 65° for this date, set back in 1950. Will we get there? It’s possible but I think we stay just under it.
After a lull in the rain early this afternoon, another round is expected to move in. A broken line of rain/storms will arrive ahead of a cold front. The likelihood is low but a few storms COULD become strong to severe. The more favorable locations for any potential severe weather are on the western and southern side of the state. The SPC has us highlighted under a Marginal Risk for severe weather, which is the lowest category for severe weather potential within their scale.
We dry out for Wednesday but that will be a transitional day for us. The cold front will slide through the state and send temperatures on a downward swing. Temperatures in the 50s early in the morning will be falling into the mid 40s by the afternoon. It’s back to the 30s as we close out the week with a couple chances for a few snowflakes.
