Clear skies and light winds helped temperatures this morning drop down into the upper 30s in most spots. It was definitely a chilly start to the morning, but the sunshine is already making up for it. Temperatures so far have climbed into the upper 50s and we look to warm up into the upper 60s this afternoon. Today looks to be mostly dry and mild with plenty of sunshine before things begin to change up this evening. Not only do you want to take your sunglasses, but it would also be a good idea to have an umbrella on hand.
Clouds will then increase later on today as a cold front begins to approach the region. This frontal boundary will bring a chance for showers as well as a few embedded thunderstorms. Instability will be on the low side throughout this event so we aren’t expecting anything severe. But a few rumbles of thunder are possible.
Timing out the rain, the first half of the day looks to remain dry. Our highest chances for rain will occur between 5 PM and 10 PM this evening. The cold front should press through the region by midnight tonight as that is when we will see rain chances decrease substantially. Clouds will begin to go on the decrease the further we go into Friday morning.
Friday will feature much drier conditions and plenty of sunshine, but it will feel a tad bit cooler than what we will see today. Temperatures will be seasonable with highs in the low 60s. That is all before a potent low pressure system swings in for the weekend not only bringing a chance for rain and thunderstorms, but also below average temperatures.
