From the TV 5 Forecast Center:
Clouds will continue to move into the state this afternoon as a warm front to our south, lifts northward into the region. The warm front, combined with an upper level disturbance moving into the region will bring us a good chance of showers and thunderstorms moving into the state during the mid-late afternoon hours. Some of the thunderstorms could be severe today with damaging winds, hail and torrential downpours being the main threats. If you have outdoor plans today, keep an eye to the sky during the afternoon for the potential of severe weather affecting your area. Temperatures will be in the low to mid-70s along the coast due to a southerly breeze off the ocean while inland areas reach the upper 70s to low 80s. Showers and thunderstorms will continue into the night tonight especially before midnight then tapering off after that as the upper level disturbance exits the region and the warm front lifts to our north. Temperatures will drop back to the low and mid-60s for nighttime lows.
Thursday looks warm and humid ahead of an approaching cold front. The cold front is forecast to cross through the state during the afternoon and evening hours. This will give us a chance for a few scattered showers and thunderstorms during the day, mainly the afternoon hours. Severe weather is not a concern Thursday but if you have outdoor plans, keep in mind we could see a shower or thunderstorm in spots. Otherwise expect variably cloudy skies with temperatures in the mid-70s to mid-80s for highs. Once the front clears the state Thursday evening, cooler and less humid air will move in behind the front Thursday night. Friday looks good with a mix of sun and clouds, cooler and more comfortable conditions. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s to mid-70s Friday afternoon. High pressure will build in and bring us a nice stretch of weather through the weekend.
