Chance of *Scattered* Showers & Storms After Midnight -Bill Graul
Turning Much Cooler... Especially by Thursday
Tonight’s Forecast Low: 54F / Wednesday’s Forecast High: 66F…
It was a warm, but windy day across the region with highs in the 70s. The south winds are in advance of a strong cold front that will approach from the west overnight. As it does, expect passing clouds along with a chance for *scattered* showers and storms. Lows will be in the upper 40s to mid 50s. Winds tonight will be in the 10-20 mph range, with gusts around 30-35 mph this evening.
There’s a small chance (just Level 1 from the Storm Prediction Center) for a few strong to isolated severe storms with gusty winds and hail. The local timing would be after midnight. Rainfall amounts will be pretty light and sporadic, unless you get a thunderstorm in your location – then a bit more rain could fall.
Breezy and cooler Wednesday with highs in the upper 50s to mid 60s. Chance of showers early in the day, then again later in the afternoon into part of Wednesday evening. Winds will be from the west around 10-20 mph, with gusts around 30 mph. Breezy and even cooler Thursday with highs only in the upper 40s to low 50s. Chance of afternoon sprinkles, especially north and east.
Looking Ahead… More clouds than sun, but mainly dry Friday and Saturday… then isolated showers or sprinkles possible Sunday. Temps will remain on the cool side with highs ranging from the upper 40s to low-mid 50s in most areas.
Even cooler next Monday and Tuesday with highs only in the mid-upper 40s. Not quite as cool next Wednesday with highs back in the low-mid 50s. Overnight lows will be in the 20s to low-mid 30s over the next week or so… so I think it’s time to officially say goodbye to the growing season.
Have a great Tuesday night! -Meteorologist Bill Graul
