An area of high pressure will continue to bring us dry conditions through late Wednesday. Tuesday will be cooler with a warmer Wednesday as a warm front lifts north across the area. A cold front will arrive late Wednesday into Thursday. This will bring widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms to the area. We will have to monitor the severe weather threat on Thursday, but the timing of the storms look to move through in the morning – this will limit the severe weather threat. If the timing gets pushed more toward the afternoon and early evening then we will need to watch for an increased threat. Dry conditions return in wake of the cold front to close out the week.
