Although it’s been fairly quiet so far today, rougher weather is possible through the afternoon and evening hours as a cold front moves into the region from the west. We will be monitoring the potential for a few strong to severe storms from around 2 PM to 8 PM today. Greatest risk for a strong storm is expected to generally be near and south of I-20. Damaging winds, hail, and a couple of tornadoes could be possible with some storms. The risk for severe weather will end into tonight as drier air begins to move in with temperatures falling to the 50s overnight.

With an upper level low nearby, a few areas of sprits and sprinkles will be possible on Thursday along with gusty winds up to 30 MPH. Temperatures into tomorrow afternoon will be much cooler in the mid 60s. We will likely be even cooler once Friday rolls around with highs in the lower 60s. Some spots may not even make it out of the 50s to end off the week!

Much nicer and sunnier conditions will return by Halloween Weekend. Temperatures will reach the upper 60s and lower 70s with cool and crisp mornings in the 40s. Pleasant and fall-like weather will stick around into the first week of November with highs in the middle 70s.
