It was a wet start to our work week as showers welcomed us this morning. Messy conditions were with us through much of the morning, but the warm temperatures in the 60s and 70s kept conditions comfortable.

We should stay primarily dry through the afternoon. Don't be surprised if a pop up showers hits you on the way home from work, but it won't be anything serious. A little bit of sunshine may make an appearance with highs reaching the upper 70s and lower 80s.

No need to worry about the majority of our Monday, but tonight is a different story. All eyes are on a storm system moving in from the west tonight into Tuesday morning. As for now, the Storm Prediction Center has placed the majority of the Tri-State under a Slight Risk “2” on the Threat Index. The far southwestern half of the Tri-State remains in the Enhanced Risk "3" area tonight into Tuesday morning.

Current model data suggests that the first of our anticipated thunderstorms will develop as early as 8PM or 9PM tonight before some strong to severe storms march into the Tri-State between Midnight - 6AM. Right now, there is strong confidence the threat of severe weather will fall greatest between the hours of 3-5AM. These storms have the possibility of producing damaging winds, large hail, and isolated tornadoes. Please stay weather aware and have a plan in place tonight!

It's a cool, but beautiful start to our Thursday! Conditions will hold together for an absolutely gorgeous afternoon. Highs will still be below normal, but we'll take some high 60s under mostly sunny skies. The 70s could make a come back as soon as tomorrow!
