CommuteCast: Decidedly Mild

By Ian Livingston

Still warm Tuesday with showers & thunderstorms late

*Flood Watch Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning*

The third day of meteorological spring has brought quite warm temperatures to the region and highs have topped out in the upper 60s to near 70° -- nearly 20 degrees above average -- in most locations. The commute home will be dry and pleasant as temperatures drop through the 60s and south winds gust up to 25 mph at times.

Tonight: Clouds will increase overnight after a mostly clear start and by morning most of the region will be blanketed by thickening clouds. Temperatures will continue to be mild overnight thanks to a south wind bringing more warmth to the area. Expect lows to only hit the mid 40s in the suburbs while staying closer to 50 degrees downtown.

Tomorrow: Tuesday will be another warm day, this time with less in the way of sunshine across the area. Expect clouds to dominate along with a south wind that will continue pumping warm and moist air north into the region. Some rain is possible in the morning, but afternoon hours into the overnight will bring higher odds of significant showers and thunderstorms as a cold front begins to affect the area. There is a chance of some severe thunderstorms though the region is currently on the northern edge of the area at risk with better chances to our south. High temperatures will again reach the upper 60s to near 70° across most of the area.
