Another warm night, gusty storms possible Wednesday evening


Clouds and a few showers linger through late-week...

THIS EVENING: Partly Cloudy, Warm & Muggy. Temps Dropping Into the 70s. Winds: SE 5 mph.

OVERNIGHT: Partly Cloudy, Muggy. Lo 69. Winds: SE 5 mph.

WEDNESDAY: Scattered Evening T-Storms, Some May Be Strong. Hi 88. Winds: SW 5-10 mph.

Tonight will be warm and muggy again with overnight lows slowly dropping into the low 70s. Wednesday will start off dry with a mix of clouds and sun.

Wednesday looks to be our most active day of the week as a cold front slides through the commonwealth. This will lead to a line of broken storms by evening with damaging wind gusts the primary severe weather concern. Additional showers and storms could develop after sunset which could mean locally higher rainfall amounts (1″+) where training occurs. The front will be east of us Thursday, but an east flow combined with a tropical low off the coast will throw us more clouds and a few showers or storms our way by the afternoon. This pattern will continue into Friday before a gradual drying trend occurs this weekend. We should be back to lots of sunshine by Sunday but highs will start to rebound into the mid-80s again early next week.

Highs the next few days will remain well above average, but a brief return to more seasonable temps is expected Thursday and Friday mainly because of clouds and showers around. No signs of a drastic push of cool, dry air anytime soon.
