The nice and warm weather continues through Tuesday before we cool things down with our first real fall cold front! This means if you love the warmth you should find a way to soak it in once more today or tomorrow because big changes are on the way.
Similar to recent evenings, this evening will be nice and quiet with temperatures falling to the low 60s by Tuesday morning. Tuesday marks the final warm day in the mid-80s with partly sunny skies into the evening as our cold front approaches.
The “boundary between seasons” will stay northwest of the area Tuesday night, however, some rain showers after midnight are likely as we go into Wednesday morning. The front will begin to push through the area on Wednesday into Thursday bringing a better chance for rain and the occasional thunderstorm. Most spots have a decent chance at picking up a half inch or more with locally higher amounts of 1 to 2″ expected.
The risk for rain will tend to shift southeast Thursday with afternoon sunshine expected along and north of the interstate.
The big news is our temperature plunge to end this week. Friday and Saturday will be much cooler with high temperatures only reaching the 60s and we’ll see a couple of nights with temperatures falling into the upper 30s and low 40s this weekend!
