FORECAST IN DETAIL
Here's the deal: Yesterday evening turned out a little stormier than we anticipated -- enough to zap power in parts of the area. And now, a pesky cold front approaches the area today and stalls out overhead, giving us chances for mainly afternoon and evening storms through the next several days. Some typical summertime storm threats to go with seasonable warmth and humidity.
Today (Sunday): I don't expect it to be quite as hot as yesterday -- highs in the upper 80s to near 90 -- but with more clouds and less of a breeze it may feel a bit stickier. It won't be completely gray though, and any sun that does shine through could help fuel afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms (50% chance) ahead of an approaching cold front. Beware some strong winds and hail in any storms. Outside of storms, winds will be mainly from the southwest at 5-10 mph. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: We're in for another warm and muggy night across the area, so take relief in any storms that last into the evening (30% chance). Overnight, expect mostly cloudy skies and humid conditions with lows near 70. Winds will continue out of the southwest around 5 mph. Confidence: Medium

Tomorrow (Monday): Not exactly the way we'd like to start the week. A fair amount of clouds overhead will likely limit our glimpses of sun. The atmosphere will still be juicy, so plan for the possibility of another round of afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms (40% chance). Highs should be in the mid-to-upper 80s and continued humid. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: No use in trying to beat around the bush -- expect another warm and muggy night. Thunderstorm chances should diminish during the evening as skies remain mostly cloudy and overnight lows again only dip to near 70 for most. Confidence: Medium
If our weather this week were an iPod, we'd definitely be stuck on repeat. Tuesday and Wednesday bring more of the same. At least it's an active pattern so that weather weenies like me can enjoy it. Chances for afternoon/evening storms continue around 40%, and we'll remain sticky with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 with maybe a bit more sun than Sunday and Monday. Confidence: Medium
