Warm-up with rain and high winds all on the way.

TONIGHT: We will have cloudy skies and light winds out of the south-southeast with a low of 39 degrees.

Wednesday will see rain chances return as scattered to widespread showers are likely in the morning hours. Winds will increase to 10 to 20 mph and shift to come out of the south. These winds will help push our high temperature towards the 60 degree mark. Winds will gradually increase as we head into Thursday where we are likely to see wind gusts of 50+ mph with high temperatures pushing into the high 60’s. Along with these winds, we will see two rounds of showers and storms. The first wave looks to arrive in the morning hours with isolated thunderstorms possible. The second wave may contain more thunderstorms, and these could be strong to even severe. A Marginal Risk of severe weather is in place for all of the listening area with damaging winds as the primary threat. Our temperatures will back off into the upper 30’s to upper 40’s from Friday through next Tuesday. Friday could see some showers with snow mixing in during the evening hours.
