A weak back door cold front moved into our area with some cloudy skies and temperatures falling about 5 degrees between 5 and 6am falling from 69 to 64 degrees. This front is expected to return as a warm front later this morning and we should have a repeat of yesterday’s weather with very warm temperatures and rather high humidity, there is a chance of an afternoon or evening shower or thunderstorm but most areas will stay dry.
As a cold front approaches on Thursday showers and thunderstorms will become likely with some of these storms will be accompanied by strong winds and heavy rain.
