Good afternoon! A line of showers and a few embedded thunderstorms are working through now. These have been fairly week, and as such, the slight risk has been removed from the area. With that said, gusty winds and heavy rains will still be possible as this passes. Cooler air will then fill in tonight.
Looking below, you can see the very cold air already filling in across locations to the west. This will continue trending east as the front pulls out of the area this evening. Highs will fall 15-20 degrees, with most in the mid and upper 50s for Tuesday. We quickly warm back up, with highs returning to the 60s Thursday and Friday.
This week will be rather active with several rounds of rainfall expected. Once this one works out tonight, another will arrive from the south. Timing comes Tuesday evening/night and into the first half of Wednesday. We dry back out Thursday, with another strong cold front bringing showers and storm potential Friday and into the weekend. This one could even allow for a transition to mixed precipitation. Given the timing in this, will hold from going into much detail, but do expect cold temperatures once again to arrive for the weekend.
That will do it for today....other than the heavy rainfall the next couple of hours, we should dry back out for the greater portion of Tuesday. Highs will be cooler so don't forget to throw on that jacket!
