A big dose of spring weather made for a beautiful early summer day. The clear skies and dry air will lead to some cool overnight lows with temperatures slipping into the low to mid-50s.
Winds will switch around to the south on Tuesday, with mostly sunny skies pushing temperatures into the upper 70s during the afternoon.
A storm will begin slinging clouds our way Tuesday night with showers and a few thunderstorms spreading in by Wednesday morning. The first round of showers and thunderstorms will quickly move out with partly cloudy skies developing. Another batch of showers and thunderstorms will fire up during the afternoon. The stronger storms could produce some strong wind gusts and hail. Temperatures will remain mild with highs in the mid-70s.
Another cool night will follow with morning lows Thursday in the low 50s. Skies will remain sunny throughout the day with highs in the mid-70s.
The pattern will begin to shift Friday. Temperatures will remain on the mild side Friday, but skies will be cloudier as a weak storm crosses the area. There could be a few showers as well with highs close to 80°.
Over the weekend we’ll find ourselves in a stormier pattern. The jet stream will send a round of upper-level storms across the area. These storms will interact with higher humidity and a front, generating waves of rain and thunderstorms. Some of the rain could be heavy, and there may be a risk for some severe weather too. The risk for stronger storms looks like it will be highest Saturday evening. It will also be noticeably more summer-like with highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s and a muggy feel to the air.
