Partly to Mostly Sunny Skies This Afternoon, Showers & T’storms Wednesday 

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:


Skies will average partly to mostly sunny for the remainder of the day. Temperatures will reach the 70s to near 80° for highs. Coastal areas will be the cool spots today with winds blowing in off the ocean keeping temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s. Clouds will be on the increase tonight and we’ll see showers and thunderstorms moving in after midnight.


A cold front is forecast to come through the area on Wednesday. We’ll have a warm and muggy airmass in place on Wednesday with highs in the 70s to low 80s. As the cold front moves through, we’ll see scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the day. Some the thunderstorms could be strong to severe so we’ll keep an eye on the radar especially Wednesday afternoon. The cold front will clear the state Wednesday night bringing the showers and thunderstorms to an end followed by clearing skies late. High pressure will build in and we’ll see sunshine return to our forecast for Thursday. Thursday looks like another beautiful day with lower humidity and high temperatures in the 70s to near 80°. An upper level low pressure system is forecast to pass to our north and east on Friday bringing us a few clouds mainly over northern areas to end the work week, The upper low will also usher some slightly cooler air southward into the state with highs on Friday ranging mainly in the low to mid-70s. At this point, it looks like pleasant weather will continue through the weekend.
