A cold front is currently working through the Newscenter 11 viewing area and will clear all locations overnight. In its wake, skies will clear allowing for a cooler night as drier and cooler air filters in from the north.
As the front passes this evening, we are seeing some storms mostly south of Highway 80. These will continue to move southeastward with some gusty winds and small hail possible. Rain will exit before midnight tonight.
Tuesday and Wednesday will see ample sunshine with highs in the middle to upper 80s across the area. With low dew points, we will see chilly mornings. The coldest mornings will be Wednesday and Thursday morning where we could tie or break record lows.
Clouds begin to return Thursday, signaling the return of moisture to the area. As moisture returns, little impulses will also move through the area which may touch off some showers and storms starting Thursday afternoon through the weekend. Rain will be pop-up to isolated in nature, with no widespread rain events in the next seven days.
Highs will warm starting on Thursday back toward 90 where we should return to by Sunday and Monday.
In the tropics, a new area of interest has developed in the eastern Atlantic. It is forecast to move through a favorable environment for development, perhaps becoming our next tropical depression by the end of the week. It is currently forecast to turn northward towards the Greater Antilles, Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico by the end of this week. Any interests in these areas should monitor this system closely.
