We have partly cloudy skies early this Tuesday morning and temperatures are starting off quite mild with readings in the low 70s in Clifton to some low 60s further inland, winds are light.
Today should be a very interesting weather day as first it will be quite hot then severe thunderstorms are likely this afternoon and evening, some of these storms will be accompanied by locally damaging winds, hail, heavy rain and cloud to ground lightning, even an isolated tornado can not be ruled out. The Storm Prediction Center has our area in an “enhanced risk” for severe thunderstorms which is rare for this part of the country. A cold front will cross the area tonight ending the severe threat.
Wednesday will be cooler than today and much less humid with plenty of sunshine.
Thursday will still be comfortable warm but we should see some increasing cloudiness late in the day with showers possible at night.
Showers should persist Friday through the weekend, most of the rain will be light, temperatures will be unseasonably cool especially over the weekend.
