Hello warm weather!! We kicked off our Tuesday morning with no problems; mild and dry skies across the Tri-State. Temperatures stayed in the 50s for the first part of the day, but quickly jumped this afternoon.
I hope everyone gets to enjoy this beautiful weather! The combination of sunshine and a strong southwesterly flow is helping heat us up to what could be the hottest day of 2021 so far! It won't be hard to break a sweat today, but the strong breeze will make it feel comfortable. Unfortunately, the unseasonable warmth and sunshine won't stick around for much longer.
Changes will start to settle in overnight as clouds filter in from the west. We're tracking a cold front off to our northwest that's expected to dump showers and storms late Wednesday into Thursday morning. As of now, our far western communities still remain under a “1” on the Threat Index of Severe Weather. There will still be plenty of dry time tomorrow with highs in the upper 70s, but some pop up showers can't be ruled out before the main line pushes through between 7 PM - 1 AM.
