PM Update: Storms rolling through area
Temperature roller coaster continues tomorrow and Fri
A warm front that briefly swung north of the area, allowing humidity to rise and highs to reach the upper 70s, has set the stage for showers and storms that are now moving through the area. While it looks like the worst of the activity wants to head mainly to our south, some strong storms are possible in the metro area through evening.
Through Tonight: Watch for an isolated thunderstorm or two through mid-afternoon. More widespread showers and storms, some strong, are likely from around 4-5 p.m. into the evening. The highest risk for severe storms is south of the area, where some damaging winds and large hail are possible. Much of the severe risk should end near sundown, but some showers and weaker storms may persist through the night. Lows fall to the low-and-mid 50s.
Tomorrow (Thursday): Not a fan of today's steamy weather? Just wait until tomorrow. Both temperatures and humidity head back down thanks to mostly cloudy skies and the warm front drifting back into the area as a cold front. A few showers are possible, but nothing terribly widespread. Highs should rise to the mid-60s, perhaps a bit higher depending on the exact position of the front.
