WBOY STORMTRACKER 12 WEATHER SYNOPSIS:
The start of the work week has started off with sunshine however, we'll take a quick detour into some showers and storms before the week ends with sunshine. The lowlands warmed up nicely with highs reaching the mid-80s meanwhile, the mountains stayed considerably cooler with highs only in the 60s. More clouds will roll in tonight along with an occasional shower as a warm front pushes northward. Besides a few showers, Monday night will be mainly cloudy and warm.
The entire viewing area is under a slight risk for severe weather Tuesday as a cold front passes through. Some showers are possible as the day begins, along with a few rumbles of thunder. The chance for strong to severe storms will increase during the afternoon and evening. There is a chance that stronger storms produce damaging winds consequently leading to downed trees and power lines. Heavy rainfall, hail, isolated flooding, and even a funnel cloud are possible.
It'll be a cool middle of the week with highs only reaching the mid-70s. Clouds will hang around Wednesday along with a spotty shower and a stray rumble of thunder. However, gradual clearing is expected later in the day and overnight. You can't enjoy the sunshine without a little rain. High pressure builds in for the end of the week bringing much-deserved sunshine! After weeks and weeks of summer thunderstorms, the viewing area can expect a few consecutive dry days!
Temperatures will remain in the mid-70s for Thursday but will be accompanied by mainly sunny skies. Overall, it'll be a beautiful day.
