Good morning!

Tuesday is another steamy one! The temp reaches near 90°, with a heat index value of 88-95°, under a mostly to partly sunny sky. The wind is sticky from the south at 10-15 mph. Afternoon showers and thunderstorms develop, from midday to sunset, moving west to east at a marginally faster clip than Sunday’s storms. A few may be strong to severe, capable of producing damaging wind gusts and heavy downpours. Small hail is possible, too.

At sunset, most convection dies off, but periods of heavy rain are possible overnight into Wednesday. Low temp, 60s. The storms today are brought on by a pre-frontal disturbance, but an actual cold front is poised to swing through tomorrow. This will be the focus for a mainly cloudy sky with scattered rain and a few more afternoon t’storms. Near 80.

After the front moves by late Wednesday, clearing takes us into Thursday morning, though patchy fog is a good bet. The temp bounces between around 60° at night and 80° during the day for the rest of the week with ample sunshine.

Have a great day! Stay safe with those afternoon thunderstorms.

Best,
