It's Hump Day and it should be a nice one! Warm air surges in from the southwest giving our temperatures a boost this afternoon to the mid 70s. Partly cloudy and staying dry today, but rain begins to creep eastbound ahead of the front tonight. The best timing for this line of showers and thunderstorms will be from midnight-2am for the west and tomorrow morning through just after noon time for the east. This will mainly be a showery event, but a few strong storms will be possible within the line. Winds will be very strong as the line rolls through gusting to possible 40 mph in some spots. Highs will be in the lower 60s. Friday will be a nasty day as winds remain strong, on and off drizzle through the day and temperatures settle in the lower 50s. Once we get through all this mumbo jumbo then we can focus on the weekend. Both Saturday and Sunday will be beautiful with highs in the 60s and 70s.

Have a great Wednesday!
