First Alert Forecast: Few showers tonight, storms likely into the weekend

We are dry to start the new work week and temperatures are warming into the mid-upper 60s, making for an above-average afternoon... However, a weak disturbance will be moving overhead later today into Tuesday that will bring us an isolated shower opportunity approaching the second half of our Monday. This will be a quick moving system and won't bring much impacts outside of cooler temperatures Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning. Temperatures will quickly rebound back into the mid-upper 60s by Wednesday and Thursday!

The end of the work week and start of the weekend is a period that we will have to watch closely. A strong storm system will be approaching the region and will bring us our next opportunity for widespread showers and storms. As a warm front lifts through the state on Friday, high temperatures will be able to reach the mid 70s, with the cold front finally pushing through the region Saturday morning. Our severe weather potential will need to be monitored closely as all of the ingredients we typically look for are there in this timeframe. Stay tuned for continued updates as we get a little closer.

First Alert Forecast: warm Monday, cooler Tuesday
