High temperatures today we be well above seasonal norms ranging from the low to mid 70s for most inland areas and the upper 60s to lower 70s along the immediate coast. Lows tonight will range from the mid to upper 50s for most inland areas and the lower 60s along the immediate coast.
An area of high pressure over us, which is providing us with mostly clear skies, will shift east tonight. This change in the pattern will lead to a warm, more moist southerly wind flow over the region later today and tonight allowing for better cloud development with better coverage of fog generally over the lower half of the forecast area late tonight and early Tuesday morning.
Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with a 40 percent chance of rain, but rain chances go up to around 90 percent on Wednesday as showers and thunderstorms move into the area. A few storms could be strong to severe. The storm prediction center still maintains a risk for severe weather on Wednesday.
Models are in a little bit better agreement with the progression of this system, but it is still a little too early to pinpoint any specifics. We’ll know more about the potential for severe weather mid-week in about 24 hours from now.
Rain chances stay high for Thursday as well, but heading into the weekend, we will dry out with cooler temperatures.
