Sunny Today… Strong Storms Tonight

Enjoy the sunshine today as highs reach the 70s.  Even though it’s warm, and well above our average high of 51, we won’t break the record that was set in 2012 of 80 degrees.  If you’re feeling stuffy today, pollen levels are high, and will remain that way over the next few days.

This evening we’ll start to watch the radar to the west as a line of showers and storms will be developing and moving our way.  some storms could be on the strong to severe side after midnight into the early morning.  Our biggest threat is damaging wind, frequent lightning, heavy downpours, and the possibility of large hail.

Highs will reach the mid 30s today with cloudy skies.  Tonight lows fall into the mid to upper 20s with mostly cloudy skies.  Some fog may develop.  Because temps fall below freezing, we could see re-freezing on area roads, so a few slick spots will be possible tomorrow morning.

Highs today will reach the mid 20s with more chances for snow moving in this afternoon and evening.  Less than an inch of snow is expected.  Wind gusts up to 25mph out of the NW are likely today into tonight, and that could reduce visibility under snow showers.
