TONIGHT: Mild, Increasing Clouds Late. Lo 68.
MONDAY: Passing Clouds, PM Scattered Storms. Hi 86.
TUESDAY: Lingering AM Showers/Storms, PM Clearing. Hi 85.
Today was a beautiful August day! High temperatures climbed to the upper 80s with low humidity for this of year. The cloud-free skies from this afternoon/evening will be replaced by increasing clouds tonight. Conditions remain dry tonight, and likely for the first half of the day on Monday too. Storm chances do increase again for Monday, but similar to Saturday our region is not directly in the focus area.
Our next round of rain arrives Monday as another, more robust cold front approaches. Chances for severe weather make an appearance once again, with the south half of the Midstate placed under a slight risk by the Storm Prediction Center (SPC). At the moment, the setup looks favorable for a few scattered severe storms (especially south of our region). Timing for rain Monday will be from about dinner time to midnight, clearing out in the morning hours Tuesday. We will continue to update you on the situation as it evolves. The front itself will do a lot of good, and the cooler air, less humid air will drop us into the low 80s by Wednesday. This brief cooldown will not last long, and by Thursday the upper 80s will come knocking again and stick into the weekend. Lows drop into the low 60s overnight Wednesday before rebounding into the upper 60s by overnight Thursday.
