Time For A Cool Change

Do you remember the old Little River Band hit, Cool Change? We will feel cooler temperatures and more rain. In fact,we can’t put away our umbrellas yet. It’s still going to be cool and damp for part of the day today and there is a reason. We are tracking a cold front that is moving into the state this morning.  There will be rain and a few storms along this front from about 5am to 11am.  Behind the front, there could be additional storms developing Wednesday afternoon.  Hail and cold air funnels are possible, with the storms on Wednesday.  It will be chilly all day, with highs only in the 50s.
