After a stretch of very nice weather, we'll finally look to introduce rain chances back into the forecast for your Tuesday, mostly for the eastern third of the state.
Tonight, clouds will continue to increase ahead of our next upper level disturbance. Temperatures will stay very mild under the blanket of clouds, with overnight lows only falling down to near 50°. Winds will become southeasterly at 5 to 10 MPH.
We'll start Tuesday on the gray side, with generally cloudy conditions with areas of patchy fog and mist. Fog will lift throughout the morning, but skies will stay cloudy. Rain chances will pick up in the afternoon and evening hours with scattered showers and thunderstorms possible across the eastern third of the state -- some of those storms that do develop could be strong to severe with large hail and damaging winds being possible according to the SPC. Temperatures will still be on the warm side, with highs near 70° and breezy southeasterly winds, gusting up to 20 to 25 MPH.
Tuesday night, most of the precip should push east out of the state, and we'll be left with clearing skies and overnight lows in the low 50s.
Wednesday will be sunny and a bit cooler, but still above average with highs in the upper 60s and brisk winds from the northwest.
Thursday and Friday though we'll warm back into the low to mid 70s -- well above average -- with plenty of sunshine.
The weekend looks nice, with temperatures cooling down just a bit behind a cold front, with highs in the mid 60s. Your Halloween forecast, for now at least, looks good with highs near 70° and mostly sunny skies for next Monday.
TONIGHT: Increasing clouds with mild lows near 50°. Light southeast winds at 5 to 10 MPH.
TUESDAY: Areas of fog and mist in the morning, otherwise generally cloudy and mild with highs near 70°. 40% chance for showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening -- some of which could be strong to severe.
WEDNESDAY: A lingering shower is possible in the morning, otherwise we'll see mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 60s. Brisk northwesterly winds gusting up to 25 MPH.
THURSDAY: The warm up begins with highs reaching the low to mid 70s with plenty of sunshine and dry conditions.
