Summary & Discussion:




A cold front just to our north and west will gradually move through the region tonight.  The atmosphere in advance of this front is warm, moist and very unstable.  Showers and thunderstorms are erupting in this air mass.  Some of the storms could be severe producing large hail and damaging winds.  Also, the storms will generate cloud to ground lightning strikes and brief periods of blinding rains.   During the night, clouds and periods of rain will follow the initial storms. The front will slowly clear the region early tomorrow morning with the rain ending and the clouds slowly clearing.  Extremely pleasant weather is on tap for Friday and most of Saturday.  Another front will enter the region during the day Sunday and pass through on Monday with another good chance for additional rains and possible thunderstorms.




Tonight:  Cloudy with showers and thunderstorms likely during the evening, some of which could be severe with large hail and damaging winds.  During the night, it will remain cloudy with periods of rain with occasional thunder, low in the mid 60s.


Tomorrow: Cloudy in the morning with the rain ending followed by partial clearing during the afternoon, high in the mid to upper 70s.
