Big temperature changes coming up

By  | 

We have a small blast of normal summertime heat moving in for a few days, but the pattern continues to be skewed below normal. Throw in several rounds of rain and storms and you get the best of both worlds.

Tuesday’s weather looks steamy with highs from the upper 80s to low 90s across the state. A few afternoon and evening storms may pop up.

Wednesday could be a active weather day as a strong cold front moves in from the northwest This will bring an increase in showers and thunderstorms our way and some of these could be strong by evening. Winds look to be very gusty throughout the day. Temps could hit the low 90s if the clouds and storms arrive during the evening. If they come in earlier, temps will be cooler.

Locally heavy rains are a good bet with the storms that blow through early Thursday.

That should set us up with some very pleasant temps through the start of the weekend. This is when a stronger push of fall air arrives with even more widespread showers and thunderstorms.

Highs for Thursday and Friday should range from the upper 70s to low 80s.
