Scattered Showers and Thunderstorms Wednesday; Drier Conditions Coming

Cooler Daytime Highs This Afternoon

An area of low pressure over Georgia will slide northeast today and tonight bringing scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms as it pushes moist air over the dry cool airmass that is currently in place across the viewing area. There is a MARGINAL risk for severe weather this afternoon with gusty winds of 40mph+, quarter sized hail and periods of heavy rainfall possible. Daytime highs this afternoon will struggle to get out of the 70s in some spots due to that cooler air. A wedge front pushes through by Thursday with high pressure taking over behind it. This means drier conditions return as well as warmer temperatures.

Toward the end of the weekend, high pressure moves off the east coast and allows moisture to move back into the region, so will add at least isolated showers back into the forecast starting Monday. We will settle into a typical summerlike pattern next week with a chance for showers every day as daytime highs stay near seasonal. Nightly lows will trend a bit above the norm.
