We’re wrapping up the work with another round of sunshine! Gorgeous conditions will persist through our Friday as high temperatures reach the mid 70s this afternoon. Passing clouds and a stray shower will be possible overnight, but fortunately won’t bring any impacts to your Friday evening plans. Winds return out of the south tomorrow & will usher in warmer and more humid weather. Highs will get back into the 80s this weekend as a result! Although we’ll stay dry for the first half of the weekend, our next cold front will usher in a line of storms by dinnertime on Mother’s Day.

A few strong-severe storms will be possible, especially in our NW counties as the storms initially move in. Damaging wind gusts & hail would be the main concerns, but a quick spin-up tornado would also be possible.

The front will linger around the region into the start of next week as we anticipate a few overhead disturbances... This will allow for daily shower and thunderstorm chances through mid-week! High pressure finally builds back in by Thursday & sunshine will return to the forecast by the end of the 7-day.
