Thunderstorms will be around again this afternoon and evening, but they will not be as numerous as they have been in recent days. Those that do develop could become severe. Damaging wind and large hail will be the primary severe weather threats.
Temperatures will be stepping up today as high pressure starts to nose in from the west. We will warm fairly easily into the 80's and 90's with 70's for highs in high elevations. We will stay quiet through noon, when we're looking at temperatures in the 70's and 80's and we will still be dry. Like yesterday and Monday the showers will begin coming together in higher elevations as we approach 2 PM. Then 2 PM to 5 PM looks stormy along parts of the Urban Corridor. Showers and thunderstorms will persist through the evening as they slide eastward, and we will dry overnight aside from a lingering shower or two.
The moisture content of the atmosphere will continue to decrease, and with a little wind shift ahead of an approaching cold front the downslope wind will be favored. Since upward air motion is necessary for thunderstorms, the downslope wind will favor dry weather with unseasonably warm temperatures tomorrow, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We will stay warm and overall dry even into Monday, but temperatures will begin cooling slightly. We introduce showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday next week in a pattern than also looks to favor further cooling into midweek.
