A Stormy Tuesday
Southwesterly flow pushed a few weak waves through the area today. That, combined with daytime heating, kicked up several strong storms that brought gusty winds, periods of heavy rain and frequent lightning this afternoon. We’ll settle down this evening into the overnight before storms attempt to fire back up again Tuesday afternoon as a cold front approaches out of the west. As of this writing, a MARGINAL risk (1 out of 5) for severe weather is forecasted just to the west of the WLTZ viewing area for Tuesday. I wouldn’t be surprised if that is extended to include us. The main threat would be damaging winds of 40+ mph. We’ll keep an eye on that.
That cold front is projected to slow down and perhaps become briefly stationary to our west on Wednesday, so a decent chance for showers and thunderstorm remains with us on Hump Day. This will also help bring daytime temperatures down into the upper 70s to mid 80s.
The front passes by Thursday ushering in drier air that will hamper chances for rain through the weekend. Daytime temps will be on the rise hitting the upper 80s to mid 90s while nighttime temps will remain in the upper 60s to mid 70s during that stretch.
