Warm & sunny conditions will continue through the rest of our Tuesday as high temperatures reach near 80 degrees this afternoon! BIG changes are on the way, however... A cold front will be passing through overnight and will bring much cooler conditions with it for the middle of the week.

Highs Wednesday afternoon will only reach the low 60s and morning lows by Thursday morning will be on either side of 40°. Although we quickly recover temeprature-wise Thursday and Friday afternoon, yet another system will be pushing towards the region at that point.

Although rain is not expected with the first frontal passage, that second system will bring showers and storms to the area Friday evening through Saturday morning... Looking at data, there is the potential for strong-severe storms in this time frame, especially along and south of I-20. Be sure to check in for frequent forecast updates for this reason!

⛈ SEVERE STORMS POSSIBLE FRIDAY NIGHT-SATURDAY... Tonight's cold front will just bring in much cooler temps...

Fortuantely, the storms won’t last all weekend and temperatures will remain in the mid 70s by Sunday afternoon. Even warmer by the start of next week...

First Alert Forecast: warm sun Tuesday; brisk sun Wednesday
